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.
