Henry Ruggs’ girlfriend Rudy Washington saved Raiders star by dragging him from car after crash that killed Tina Tintor

FORMER Las Vegas Raiders star Henry Ruggs was saved by his girlfriend who dragged him from the ruins of his car after a fatal crash earlier this month, a witness says.

Ruggs, who was released by the Raiders following the fatal crash, was knocked unconscious after allegedly striking his 23-year-old victim Tina Tintor's car at 127mph. 


His girlfriend Rudy Washington was seen pulling Ruggs out of his mangled Corvette by Tony Rodriguez who arrived at the scene of the crash shortly afterward.

“We ran up to her first, I was going to tell her don’t move but she was already in the process of pulling him out of the vehicle," he said.

After making sure the couple was okay, Rodriguez and his passenger, Johnny Ellis, both 47, raced over to 23-year-old Tintor's car.

The duo smashed the two front windows open and attempted to pull the victim out of the car but the vehicle burst into flames moments later.

“I was trying to pull her out but the door was stuck,” said Rodriguez who added that Tintor was still breathing.

After the car was engulfed in flames, Rodriguez said he and Ellis couldn’t do more for Tintor and her dog who was also in the vehicle.

“I  feel like I failed.”

LA Police say Ruggs was driving at 156mph before slowing down to 127mph when he struck Tina’s car.

His blood-alcohol level was twice Nevada’s legal limit.

If convicted on all counts, he could face up to 46 years in prison.
