The news just continues to get worse for Rashee Rice.

More details have since come out that revealed that the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver was driving a Lamborghini SUV at 119 mph in the moments before he caused a multivehicle crash along Central Expressway last month in Dallas. That six-car accident would injure four people, according to an arrest warrant affidavit obtained by The Dallas Morning News.

The Corvette that was racing alongside Rice was driving 116 mph. The speed limit on the highway where the crash was 70 mph.

On Thursday, Rashee Rice finally turned himself into the Glenn Heights Police Department after a warrant was issued for his arrest Wednesday. His lawyer, Royce West, confirmed that he was released on bond.

SMU cornerback Teddy Knox, Rice’s former teammate, reportedly faces similar charges as he was the driver of the other crashed vehicle. Rice and his group then allegedly fled the scene on foot while passengers in other vehicles had to be transported to the hospital with injuries.
The Dallas Morning News reported more details of Rice’s arrest-warrant affidavit as it states that the two cars, Rice’s Chevrolet Corvette and the Lamborghini Urus Rice admitted to driving, “made multiple aggressive maneuvers to get through traffic” before the accident and that “both took faulty evasive action” to avoid a collision before colliding with a sedan, starting the chain reaction.

“According to crash data cited in the affidavit, the Urus was traveling 119 miles per hour 4.5 seconds before the collision,” the DMN story continues. “The Corvette was traveling 116 miles per hour 7.5 seconds before the collision but had slowed to 91 miles per hour about 1.5 seconds before. The speed limit was 70 miles per hour. “
