Henry Ruggs is probably not going to want to read this.

A Nevada coroner revealed on Tuesday that the woman killed in the alleged DUI crash involving former Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III burned to death in her car.

Tina Tintor “died from thermal injuries due to a motor vehicle collision on Nov. 2,” according to Clark County Coroner Melanie Rouse. She was 23 years old.

“Other significant conditions contributing to her death were inhalation of products of combustion, fractures of the nasal bones, right sided ribs … left forearm and (chest),” a statement from Rouse to the Associated Press reads. “The manner of her death was accidental.”

Ruggs was driving his Corvette 156 mph early on Nov. 2 on a residential Las Vegas street while under the influence of alcohol before colliding into Tintor’s Toyota Rav4, puncturing the gas tank, killing her and her golden retriever Max.

Witnesses told police that they heard screams and attempted to rescue Tintor and her dog, but were unable to approach the car engulfed by smoke and fire, according to AP.

What a tragedy.
