PEOPLE previously reported that a Lamborghini and Chevrolet Corvette fled the scene of a crash that occurred shortly before 6:25 p.m. in Dallas, Texas. The Corvette was later found to be registered in Rice’s name.

“The drivers lost control and the Lamborghini traveled onto the shoulder and hit the center median wall, causing a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles,” authorities said in a statement. 

Authorities previously told PEOPLE that after the collision, “occupants of the Lamborghini and the Corvette all ran from the scene without stopping to determine if anyone needed medical help or providing their information.”

At the time, Rice’s attorney, Royce West, told PEOPLE that the NFL player’s “thoughts” were with those affected by the crash.

“Rashee is cooperating with local authorities and will take all necessary steps to address this situation responsibly,” attorney Royce West said in a statement to PEOPLE.
