Police in Dallas are searching for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice in connection with an investigation into a major crash on Saturday evening.

The Dallas Morning News reported that a vehicle, believed to be registered or leased to Rice, was involved in a crash at about 6:20 p.m. on Saturday.

Dallas Police spokeswoman Kristin Lowman told the paper that the preliminary investigation determined a driver in a Chevrolet Corvette and a driver in a Lamborghini was speeding in the far left lane of U.S. Highway 75 when both drivers lost control of their vehicles.

Dashcam video obtained by NBC 5 in Dallas from a witness showed two high-end sports cars speeding past another car and crashing into a median wall, setting off a chain reaction crash that involved multiple vehicles. Three people were then seen getting out of one of the sports cars and walking away without checking on the other people involved in the crashes.

Two drivers were treated at the crash site for minor injuries and two other people were taken to a hospital with minor injuries, while police are still working to identify those involved. In all, six vehicles were involved in the crashes.

Rice's alleged involvement in the crash is unclear, but the police call sheet obtained by The Dallas Morning News listed him as the suspected driver of the Corvette. The extent of Rice's involvement in the crash remains unclear and it's unconfirmed whether he was in the Corvette.

Rice, a second-round pick by the Chiefs last year, had a standout rookie season as Patrick Mahomes' leading receiver behind Travis Kelce. He had 79 catches for 938 yards and a team-leading seven touchdowns before setting an NFL rookie record with 26 postseason receptions during the Chiefs' Super Bowl run.

The 23-year-old Rice grew up in North Richland Hills, Texas, and attended Southern Methodist University (SMU) in University Park, a suburb of Dallas.
