On November 2, 2021, the Las Vegas Raiders released Ruggs following his involvement in a vehicle crash that left a 23-year-old woman dead. The Raiders sent out a brief statement announcing Ruggs’ release. The team tweeted: “The Las Vegas Raiders have released WR Henry Ruggs III.” The Raiders had issued a statement earlier in the day saying, “The Raiders are aware of an accident involving Henry Ruggs III that occurred this morning in Las Vegas. We are devastated by the loss of life and our thoughts and prayers go out to the victim’s family. We are in the process of gathering information and will have no further comment at this time.”
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said: “Our hearts go out to the family and friends of the victim of this horrific tragedy. We will continue to gather facts and monitor the matter under our policies, but our thoughts at this time are with those impacted by this devastating incident.”
The Chevrolet Corvette that Ruggs was driving slammed at high speed into the rear of a Toyota Rav4 on a busy thoroughfare in a residential area several miles west of the Las Vegas Strip at about 3:39 a.m. local time Tuesday.
