Terrifying 911 Call From Henry Ruggs DUI Accident Released: “All I See Is Flames”

Prosecutors on Wednesday formally charged Henry Ruggs III for allegedly driving drunk when he crashed into another car, killing the driver and her dog.

Prosecutors allege Ruggs was driving 156 miles per hour just before the crash and had a blood-alcohol content of .161, twice the legal limit.

Newly released 911 calls capture the moment witnesses started to report the fiery crash:

A criminal complaint charges Ruggs with DUI resulting in death, reckless driving resulting in death, DUI resulting in substantial bodily harm, and reckless driving resulting in substantial bodily harm, all felonies, plus misdemeanor possession of a gun under the influence of alcohol.


Ruggs could face anywhere from two years upwards of 50 years in prison if convicted and would not receive probation.

The judge is expected to reach a decision on the request on Dec. 8.
