Dallas police are seeking Kansas City Chiefs star wideout Rashee Rice after he allegedly fled the scene of a high-speed crash Saturday in Dallas, The Dallas Morning News (DMN) reported.

Police believe one of the vehicles involved in a high-speed crash Saturday evening is registered to Rice,  according to the outlet.

Drivers in a Lamborghini and a Corvette were racing at high speeds in the left lane when they both lost control and crashed, Dallas police spokeswoman Kristin Lowman told the outlet.

Rice is suspected as having been behind the wheel of the Corvette, a law enforcement document obtained by the DMN revealed.

While speeding, the Lamborghini allegedly moved to the shoulder where it hit the median divider, causing an accident that involved four other vehicles plus the Corvette, Lowman told the outlet.

All of the occupants of both the Lamborghini and the Corvette fled the scene on foot before police arrived without checking on the well-being of any of the victims or providing their information, Lowman reportedly continued.

Four victims suffered minor injuries, with two of them being transported to the hospital, according to the outlet. (RELATED: Not One, But Two Star NFL Receivers Arrested In Separate Incidents)

Dashcam footage obtained by the Daily Mail shows the moment the alleged accident occurred.

27-year-old Kayla Quinn told The Dallas Morning News she had her four-year-old son in the car with her when she was sideswiped by one of the vehicles.

“No one stopped,” Quinn told the outlet. “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?”

Quinn noted a pair of football cleats were left in the back of the Lamborghini, according to the outlet.

Rice was an integral cog of the Chiefs’ Super Bowl-winning offense last season. The rookie led the team’s wideouts in catches and yards and led all Chiefs in touchdown receptions with seven.

The Daily Caller reached out to the Chiefs for comment but did not hear back by time of publication.
