Mr Rice is now facing eight felony charges in connection with the incident.

The charges carry potential penalties of years in prison.

He was taken to jail after turning himself in, authorities told the BBC.

According to Dallas police, the two speeding cars involved in the accident – a Lamborghini and Corvette – caused a “chain reaction collision” that damaged four more vehicles.

Police told the BBC the occupants of both speeding cars had run from the scene of the crash.

An arrest warrant for Mr Rice, a wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, was issued on Wednesday.”I sincerely apologise to everyone impacted in [the] accident,” he said.

Dashcam footage from another motorist appears to show the moment of the collision.

The video shows two vehicles speeding ahead of the motorist, losing control and crashing into several more cars, which then spin out of control on the motorway.

The driver of the second car, 21-year-old Theodore Knox, is also subject to an arrest warrant.
