Ruggs’ girlfriend, 22-year-old Kiara Je’nai Kilgo-Washington was in the passenger seat and is said to be seriously injured.

“I can hear them speeding down Rainbow,” Leone added. 

“If you look where the corvette was behind the light post, that wall has been rebuilt two or three times because of accidents. Honestly, it’s sad,” added Leone.

Ruggs stayed on the scene after the crash and is now facing two felony charges. DUI resulting in death and reckless driving resulting in death.

“This guy had enough money to have a limo service or a tour bus or anybody instead of driving while drinking,” said Latrice Wahnon a neighbor living nearby the scene.
