According to reports, the ex-NFL star was traveling nearly 160 miles before the accident. Authorities say he smashed into the Toyota at 127 MPH. Cops also revealed his blood alcohol level was twice the legal limit.

Ruggs reportedly refused to cooperate in field sobriety tests at the scene. He was transported to a hospital for his injuries and later arrested.

Law Enforcement told TMZ they also found a gun inside Ruggs' corvette. In his mug, the football player is seen with a bloody gash across his nose. He also appears to have a bruise underneath his left eye.

Wearing a navy blue jail uniform, Ruggs' neck was restricted from moving with the foam brace. He did not look at the camera, instead, he seemed to look beyond the lens. Police allegedly called his injuries "serious" in official documents.

Ruggs could face more than 20 years in prison for the crash that occurred around 3:40 AM on Tuesday. According to reports, he veered into the right lane of a three-lane road, hitting the back of the Toyota.

The 23-year-old female driver of the Toyota allegedly got trapped in her seat, making her unable to escape the vehicle when it burst into flames. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ruggs was booked on two felony charges — DUI with serious bodily harm and Reckless Driving with death or serious bodily harm. If convicted, the DUI carries up to 20 years in prison. The reckless driving charge could hold an additional one-to-6-year sentence.

Following the tragedy, the NFL released a statement saying, "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."

Hours later, they released Ruggs from the Raiders.
