Who was Tina Tintor ?

Friends of Tina Tintor shared more about her life with Now after she died in a fiery accident involving former Raider Henry Ruggs III on Tuesday.

“He’s brilliant, he’s smart, he’s smart,” Tina’s childhood friend Bojana Filipovic said of her. “She is very charismatic.”

Filipovic said she was with the 23-year-old shortly before the collision, adding that the two were returning home from a night walk with Tina’s dog, who also died in the accident.

“Her mother called me crying,” remembers Filipovic. “Like ‘hey, can you check if that’s her car?’ She wasn’t coming home.”

It’s an outcome she could never have imagined, and the police are now shedding light on what led up to the accident.

Investigation

Investigators said Ruggs was traveling 156 miles per hour before crashing into Tina’s truck, citing his blood alcohol level at 0.161, which is double the legal limit.

The Rav4 caught fire with Tintor and her dog Maxi hers still inside. None survived.

“Her mom would call me crying like, ‘Hey, can you check if that’s her car? She wasn’t coming home. She was supposed to get up at 7am to run errands, but she never came home with her dog.’ . Filipovic recalled.
