Police officers are searching for Kansas City Chiefs star Rashee Rice after his car was reportedly involved in a six-vehicle car collision.

According to Dallas Morning News, the 23-year-old athlete was the suspected driver of a Chevrolet Corvette that was racing a Lamborghini at 6:20PM on Saturday (March 30) night.

Four people were involved in the accident, with two drivers being given medical attention at the crash site while another two went to the hospital for minor injuries.

Dallas police spokeswoman Kristin Lowman told the outlet that the drivers of the expensive vehicles ran from the scene on foot without stopping to see if anyone needed medical help or providing any of their information.

Following news of the crash and the search for Rice, dashcam video obtained by WFAA revealed the terrifying moment the two speeding cars lost control and slammed into several other vehicles.

Lowman explained to Dallas Morning News that the motorists were speeding in the far left lane, and the Lamborghini driver "hit the center median wall, causing a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles".

Kayla Quinn, 27, also revealed to the publication that she was driving home from the Fort Worth Zoo with her four-year-old son when the wreck occurred.

"No one stopped," Quinn said about the drivers. "We had children, like, we had kids, you know what I’m saying? It’s the fact that there was no sympathy shown to where y’all can even have the decency to stop and check to make sure someone’s OK, someone’s alive, you know?"

Another CCTV video of the aftermath surfaced on social media, and showed several motionless cars after the collision, seemingly after the drivers who caused it ran from the scene. Police officers also appeared in the footage, and can be seen helping someone involved in the accident.

Police records do not disclose whether the footballer is facing charges or whether he was directly involved in the incident.

He also did not appear on Dallas County jail records.

Rice grew up in the Fort Worth suburb of North Richland Hills, Texas, and spent all four years of his college career in Dallas.

After committing to SMU, the athlete became one of the most successful wide receivers in the college's history, ranking fifth in the all-time yard charts among receivers.

The newly crowned Super Bowl champ was drafted by the Chiefs in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. In his rookie season, he ranked second in the team for receptions (79) and receiving yards (938), only trailing Travis Kelce, and first in touchdown catches with seven.

Rice also registered 26 catches for 262 yards in the postseason as the Chiefs saw off the Miami Dolphins, Buffalo Bills, Baltimore Ravens, and San Francisco 49ers on their way to a second consecutive Super Bowl.
