Ruggs was reportedly traveling at 156 mph in his Corvette seconds before he crashed into the back of a Rav4 and caused the Toyota to burst into flames. In the above video, Ruggs’ girlfriend, Kiara Washington, is seen holding and consoling the professional football player.
“OK. OK, here. I’m sorry. I’m sorry,” she told Ruggs before he responded, “F***!!! Stop yelling!!!”
After one witness is heard telling a responding officer who Ruggs was, Washington is heard panicking as Ruggs starts to lose consciousness.
“Can we get help?!?” she yelled. “Can you please help him!?! He is knocked unconscious!”
Towards the end of the video, Ruggs appeared to regain consciousness as more bystanders came to assist the couple.
Ruggs reportedly had a blood alcohol concentration level more than two times the legal limit and had a gun in the car. The 22-year-old is facing up to 2-20 years for his charge of DUI resulting in death, and an additional six years for a second charge of reckless driving.
Ruggs has since been released after posting his $150,000 bail and his next court appearance is November 10. The Las Vegas Raiders released the wide receiver following the car accident.
