On the morning of November 2nd, former Las Vegas Raiders player Henry Ruggs III was involved in a car accident. Police in Nevada have released the victim’s name, and she was found to be 23-year-old Tina O. Tintor. Law enforcement reports that she and her dog, Max, were in Tintor’s Toyota Rav 4 when a 156 mph collision between a Chevrolet Corvette driven by Henry Ruggs III and another vehicle occurred. On November 3, 2018, the prosecution in the DUI case against Henry Ruggs III alleged that the former Las Vegas Raiders player was driving at a speed of more than 150 miles per hour.
Moreover, they said that Ruggs’ blood alcohol level was double the legal limit in Nevada. Following his arrest and hospitalisation following the collision, the Raiders dismissed Henry Ruggs only a few hours later. The former wideout appeared in court for the first time on Wednesday, when he was charged with felony counts of reckless driving and DUI. The maximum sentence for the 22-year-old if convicted on the charges is 26 years in prison.
Who is Tina Tintor, the 23-year-old victim of Henry Ruggs’ DUI?
Henry Ruggs slammed into Tina Tintor’s car, resulting in Tina’s death. The area near Rainbow Boulevard where the crime occurred is supposedly just a short distance from Tina’s home. It took her automobile almost 500 feet to slide after the crash. As the automobile filled with smoke and flames, Tina Tintor’s screams could be heard. In the backseat of her SUV was Tina’s Pomeranian, and a spectator named Alexander Hurt reportedly raced over to aid after seeing the accident unfold, as reported by The Sun. Sadly, her dog Max was also killed in the collision. Her brother’s Facebook page claims the family is from Croatia.
The 23-year-old was an active sports lover who cheered especially for the Los Angeles Lakers. Tina has been verified to have completed high school. Information about her further academic and professional pursuits is still scarce. A mutual buddy from their days in high school claimed to The Sun that they had last spoken to one other a month ago. While in the Summerlin neighbourhood, she saw her and went up to say hello. She had known him since they were sophomores in high school. The news, she claimed, broke her heart, and she couldn’t believe it, adding that she had a beautiful spirit.
Tributes pour in for Tina Tintor, the victim of Henry Ruggs’ vehicle crash.
People quickly expressed sympathy for Tina and her dog on Twitter, with some calling out Ruggs for his drunk driving. Her brother has started a GoFundMe account in reaction to the “outpouring of love” shown for the victim of Henry Rugg’s accident, Tina Tintor. It would seem that the charges against Ruggs, a former player for the Las Vegas Raiders, have been raised as a direct result of the fiery car accident that occurred on Tuesday and resulted in the deaths of Tina and her dog.
