Being fast on foot is typically a good thing for an NFL player unless they’re trying to get away. Kansas City Chiefs player, Rashee Rice fled the scene after wrecking a Chevrolet Corvette. The Corvette was racing a Lamborghini and caused a six-car pileup.

Chief player Rashee Rice is suspected in a hit-and-run

Allegedly, Rashee Rice was racing a Chevy Corvette against a Lamborghini when both drivers lost control of their vehicles. This caused a six-car pileup on the highway.

Dallas police spokeswoman, Kristin Lowman explains that the preliminary investigation and video shows the Corvette and Lamborghini speeding in the left lane when both drivers lost control.

The Lamborghini went on the shoulder and then hit the median wall, causing a chain reaction collision, involving four other vehicles. Two drivers were treated for minor injuries at the scene and two were taken to the hospital.

The Corvette is believed to be registered or leased to Rice, but both drivers fled the scene before the cops arrived. They didn’t even stop to check on the fellow motorists involved.

It’s unknown if Rice was actually at the scene, but the police are looking for the 23-year-old because he is the suspected driver of the Corvette.

He might not be facing charges related to the accident and as of Sunday morning, Rice has not been mentioned in Dallas County Jail records.

According to online forums, the Dallas, Texas native owns a black C8 Corvette Z06. He is often seen leaving his home and arriving to practice in this vehicle. He’s even filmed Instagram videos while driving it.

The Corvette Z06 costs between $114,395 – $138,425 depending on trim levels and options. That’s an expensive vehicle to abandon on the side of the road. But as a recent Super Bowl winner, he can probably cover the costs.

It’s a supercar with a naturally aspirated 5.5 V8 engine with 670 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. It can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds.

Stay tuned for updates. Rice could be cleared from his alleged involvement or possibly charged. We hope that the others involved recover quickly.
