Henry Ruggs suffered only minor injuries in the car crash that led to him being charged with multiple crimes. For two women and a pet dog, they were not as fortunate.
Ruggs was involved in a fatal car crash in Las Vegas that killed a 23-year-old woman. The former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver also had his girlfriend, Rudy Washington, in his car and she is said to have suffered “serious” injuries and was taken to the hospital. The 22-year-old has been booked on two charges: DUI with serious bodily harm and reckless driving with death or serious bodily harm. He faces up to 20 years in prison for the DUI charge. The reckless driving with death charge also carries a 1-6 year penalty.
The 22-year-old NFL player was driving a Chevrolet Corvette which “slammed at high speed into the rear of a Toyota Rav4”, according to reports.
Washington, whose full name is Kiara Kilgo-Washington, has a daughter with Ruggs.
Her Instagram shows she currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada and she currently bolsters over 9,000 followers.
Rudy and Henry have reportedly been dating since high school.
Henry’s attorneys have issued a statement on his behalf following the car accident.
