Kansas City Chiefs wideout Rashee Rice was driving 119 mph before causing a six-vehicle crash on March 30 on a Dallas highway, according to an arrest-warrant affidavit obtained by the Dallas Morning News.

Rice’s Lamborghini Urus reached 119 mph 4.5 seconds before the collision, according to the affidavit. A Chevrolet Corvette driven by SMU cornerback Teddy Knox was traveling 116 mph 7.5 seconds before the collision before slowing to 91 1.5 seconds before the crash.

The crash on the North Central Expressway (U.S. 75) left at least seven people with injuries.

The two cars “made multiple aggressive maneuvers to get through traffic,” the affidavit said.

Rice and four other men were seen leaving the scene of the crash without seeing if any of the injured needed help.

Rice is facing one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury, according to police.

Rice turned himself into police on Thursday and was later released on bond. On April 3, he said he took “full responsibility” for his actions.

Knox has been suspended by the SMU football team. He turned himself in on Friday and faces the same charges as Rice, his former SMU teammate.

According to the affidavit, one woman who was injured in the crash sustained injuries to her head, neck and back. The woman told the Dallas Morning News that she was stranded on the highway with her 4-year-old son for about five hours after the crash.

Among the other injuries, the affidavit listed one person as having sustained “seriously bodily injury” to her face, head, torso and leg. The report said she also had post-concussion symptoms, including headaches, extreme light and sound sensitivity and brain fog.

She will be dealing with “a life of limited mobility and sight for an undetermined, extended period of time while she seeks treatment,” the affidavit said.

Rice, who turns 24 on April 22, grew up in the North Texas suburb of North Richland Hills.

He recorded 79 catches and 938 yards with a team-leading seven touchdown receptions in 16 games (eight starts) after being selected by Kansas City in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. He also had 26 catches for 262 yards and a score in four playoff games to help the Chiefs secure their second straight Super Bowl title.
