Rice and his posse left the scene before providing identification or checking on any of the victims, according to the lawsuit, which the plaintiffs took issue with because they say some of the victims were “severely injured, bleeding, and visibly distressed,” TMZ reported.

They charged the receiver with one count of aggravated assault, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury and six counts of collision involving injury, according to the Associated Press.

Rice apologized on Twitter days after the accident saying “I take full responsibility for my part in this matter and will continue to cooperate with the necessary authorities. I sincerely apologize to everyone impacted in Saturday’s accident.”

Petrovskiy and Gromova are also suing Knox for his alleged involvement, according to TMZ.
