NFL Player Rashee Rice Faces 8 Charges in Dallas Hit-and-Run Crash

Rashee Rice from the Kansas City Chiefs and another driver, Theodore Knox, face charges for aggravated assault, collision resulting in serious bodily injury, and collision causing injury in connection with a hit-and-run incident in Dallas that left four people injured.

In a surprising twist, NFL player and North Texas native Rashee Rice and another driver, Theodore Knox, face eight charges linked to a hit-and-run crash on Central Expressway in Dallas last month. The crash caused injuries to four people. Rice and Knox each face one charge of aggravated assault, one charge of collision involving serious bodily injury, and six charges of collision involving injury.

According to Dallas Police, Rice, 23, and Knox, 21, were speeding along U.S. Highway 75 near University Boulevard in a Lamborghini SUV and a Corvette when they caused a chain reaction crash involving four other vehicles. A witness’s dashcam video captured the crash, revealing the occupants of the sports cars exiting their vehicles and walking away without pausing to assess if anyone required medical assistance or providing their information.

“The occupants of the Lamborghini and the Corvette all ran from the scene without stopping to determine if anyone needed medical help or providing their information,” Dallas Police said after the crash. Dallas Fire-Rescue attended to two drivers with minor injuries at the scene, and they transported two occupants of another vehicle to a local hospital due to minor injuries.

Five days after the crash, Texas Sen. Royce West, D-Dallas, who represents Rice, gave a statement admitting his client told police he was driving one of the luxury sports cars involved in the crash.

“During the interview, Mr. Rice acknowledged that he was driving the Lamborghini,” Royce West said. “The question arose, and he promptly answered, stating that he drove the Lamborghini.”

Rice, a North Richland Hills native who played college football at SMU before the Kansas City Chiefs drafted him in 2023, publicly apologized on Instagram on April 4. Police stated that they would not charge the passengers of the vehicles that left the scene. Dallas Police said the investigation into the crash is ongoing.

This incident has left many people shocked and disappointed, and it will be interesting to see how the investigation unfolds and what consequences Rice and Knox will face for their actions.
