LAS VEGAS (AP) — A longtime friend says she was with a Las Vegas woman minutes before she was killed in a crash that authorities say former Raiders player Henry Ruggs III caused.

Authorities say he was driving 156 mph with a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit in Nevada. Bojana Filipovic says Tina Tintor had dropped her off at home before she was killed.

Ruggs and his girlfriend were in a Corvette that slammed into the rear of Tintor's vehicle early Tuesday, igniting a fire that killed Tintor and her dog, Maxi. The Raiders have released Ruggs and he faces multiple felony charges including driving under the influence of alcohol resulting in death.
