Coroner’s Gut-Wrenching Examination Reveals Victim Of Henry Ruggs DUI Crash Died Of “Thermal Injuries”

Henry Ruggs

This is just gut-wrenching.

As we continue to receive updates on the Henry Ruggs III car wreck, where he killed 23-year-old Tina Tintor and her dog after going 156 mph and was twice the legal limit, this may be the most disturbing news out of all.

According to the Clark County coroner’s office, Tintor and her dog Max both died of “thermal injuries” after her Toyota RAV4 went up in flames after the crash. Meaning… they were burned alive.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the coroner’s office statement read:

“Other significant conditions contributing to her death were inhalation of products such as combustion, fractures of the nasal bones, right sided ribs… left forearm and (chest). The manner of her death was accidental.”

Police said that Ruggs’ Corvette hit Tintor’s car so hard, that it immediately went up in flames.

Just an absolutely horrific scene all around, as you simply can’t fathom the horror that Tintor and her dog went through after the crash before their passing.

Her high school friend Mia Galvan had a lot of incredible things to say about her fallen friend:

“She was a fore to be reckoned with in the best possible way. She was never afraid to be herself. She never grew out of that.”

Ruggs was cut from the Las Vegas Raiders, and could be facing up to 40 years in prison on charges of DUI resulting in death and reckless driving. There was also an added weapons charge as well.

He’s on house arrest at the moment, and constantly monitored for alcohol via device attached to his leg.

His next court date is set for January 4th.

Just awful…
