Rice was allegedly involved with the Corvette that was speeding. However, FOX 4 Dallas reported Monday that an attorney representing The Classic Lifestyle confirmed Rice rented the Lamborghini SUV from The Classic Lifestyle. He was supposed to be the only person driving the vehicle, according to the company’s policy. 
Dallas Police also told Fox News Digital occupants in both the Corvette and Lamborghini fled without exchanging information or checking to see if anyone needed help.

Two drivers of vehicles involved in the crash were treated for injuries, and two others were taken to a hospital for minor injuries. 
Rice is a Texas native who played high school ball at Richland High School in North Richland Hills before attending SMU. 
Rice was a standout rookie for the Chiefs last season after Kansas City took him in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. He became Patrick Mahomes’ most trusted wide receiver down the stretch of last season.
