SJ - November 4, 2021
On Wednesday the identity of the 23-year-old woman killed in the car crash with former Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III was revealed. Her name is Tina Tintor.
Along with her identity came some disturbing details about the moments after the crash. According to an eyewitness who attempted to help Tina out of her vehicle, she was still alive after the crash and trapped in her vehicle.
From Larry Brown Sports:
“Everything we tried just wasn’t working. The fire just grew so fast,” Rodriguez recalled. “She was actually still alive. You could hear her breathing. She had her seat belt on and I was trying to cut that away. Trying to grab them by their shoulders and pull them out but that wasn’t working. They were pinned. The seat belt was on, the airbags were in the way and the door was jammed.”
Drew Andre of FOX5 Las Vegas shared some photos of Tintor and her dog, whose name was Maxi.

My sister from another, since we were 5, who knew that night was the last time I’ll see you and walk with your dog. Our holidays are coming up & it’s gonna be weird to not be with you, no more boba, no more doing kind acts together, no more you and Maxi. RIP Tina & Max pic.twitter.com/OHvE0YYmso

I think we've wasted enough time on human trash Henry Ruggs.

Just an all around tragedy. To make things worse the whole thing was completely avoidable. Ruggs should have never been driving after drinking and he shouldn't have been going that fast.
