There are new details out regarding the fatal accident with former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III and his C8 Corvette that occurred in Las Vegas Nevada early Tuesday morning.

As reported earlier, Ruggs was driving his 2020 Corvette at 156 MPH before he rear-ended a Toyota RAV4 which burst into flames after the crash. Killed in the crash was 23-year-old Tina Tintor and her dog Max.

New surveillance video shared by TMZ Sports appears to show the moments before the crash as the Toyota RAV4 being driven by Tintor passed by while seconds later the speeding 2020 Corvette flies through the camera’s view. The two cars would collide about a block further down the street.


The police have said the cars impacted at 127 MPH so it’s likely that Ruggs may have seen the RAV4 and hit the brakes but it was too late.

Following the impact, a resident of the nearby apartment complex captured graphic footage of the accident’s aftermath with Ruggs and his girlfriend sitting on the ground outside the still-running Corvette as the Toyota burns in the background.


Ruggs is facing 40 years in prison after being charged with DUI resulting in substantial bodily harm and reckless driving. The Raiders released the 1st round draft pick on Tuesday afternoon.

  1. This is the most disgusting thing I’ve seen “he plays fro the Raiders you must help him” and the girl in the Toyota burns to death!

  2. if you have a C8 , you know how quick it can hit 156+ , and that power is so tempting , we must control the urge , that sux ! ,, but we must find safer places to goose it…and – no damn alcohol , if ya gonna goose……so sad…..RIP

  3. I have. 2015 it is capable of 180 mph but it is not instant. This idiot had plenty of time to realize he was going dangerously fast. And carrying a gun ? How stupid can he really be. Just proves most athletes learn nothing in school

  4. Ruggs hopefully gets the full sentence of 20 years with no chance for parole. He’s an irresponsible drunk driver and he killed a woman. His NLF stuff and the Corvette are meaningless accessories to what he did.

    All he had to do was use his phone and call Uber or Lyft and the woman would be alive and he could go on being an irresponsible 20 something.

    The dibble about how fast and cool the Corvette is from commenters concerning the Rugg crash is totally spurious nonsense.

  5. On average 28 people are killed everyday by drunk drivers in the U.S.
    That’s one life every 52 minutes.
    The only reason this story got the hype was because it was an athlete in a C8.
    What about the other 27 who died on 11/2/21?

  6. 11 out of 10 and congratulations to GM and CORVETTE designers and engineers for the build quality and safety mechanisms of this car. To have two passengers emerge pretty much unscathed after a 127 mph collision (and the engine still running afterwards) is astonishing.
    If only the circumstances were different this poor woman would still be alive.
    Sincere condolences to all her loved ones. RIP
