Henry Ruggs was doing 127 mph when he rear ended the other car in a 45 mph zone

This is such depraved indifference that the upper end of the sentence - 20 years seems like where the sentence should be. In fact his best excuse is being so drunk that his judgement was totally impaired.



Ruggs was in court Wednesday morning facing charges connected to Tuesday morning’s fatal crash. In court, prosecutors said his blood-alcohol level was 0.161 — two times the legal limit.

According to Metro police, a preliminary investigation shows Ruggs’ car rear-ended the Toyota, causing it to erupt in flames and kill the woman inside. Ruggs remained on the scene and showed signs of impairment, police said.

Both cars traveled more than 500 feet after impact, police said.

Police said they also impounded a black iPhone and a gun, which were found in the passenger-side floorboard of Ruggs’ car.

Police said Ruggs’ was traveling at 156 mph right before the crash. His car impacted Tintor’s vehicle at 127 mph, investigators wrote in court documents.

I figured he rear ended going about 60-70 mph (two times speed limit). Not over three times while drunk as a skunk.
