LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Near the corner of Rainbow and Spring Valley, the mural to honor and remember Tina Tintor and her dog, Max, is now complete. Tintor and her dog were killed in a fiery crash in early November.
Former Las Vegas Raider Henry Ruggs III was driving 156 miles-per-hour seconds before hitting the car driven by Tintor.
Now Tintor’s uncle has organized the painting of a large mural showing Tintor and Max on a wall facing the crash site near Rainbow and Spring Valley.
“It should remind them what can happen in a second if you’re not responsible, especially driving over the limit,” Tintor’s uncle Pedja Komazec told 8 News Now in an exclusive interview. “I don’t think that’s a good choice. If someone wants to race they should go on the race track and try their luck over there.”
Since the crash, the community has rallied around the Tintor family, including holding a walk and painting another mural at the Hearts Alive Village Animal Clinic.
