The fatal Las Vegas car crash involving Henry Ruggs III last week, which killed one woman and left the former Raiders star and his girlfriend seriously injured, prompted multiple panicked 911 calls.
In recordings obtained by TMZ Sports, one woman appears to be in shock.

Ruggs, 22, is facing five charges relating to the crash, including four felonies. Prosecutors said Wednesday the former Alabama product could face more than 50 years in prison if he’s convicted on all counts.
Prosecutors filed additional felony charges of DUI against Ruggs, who was accused of driving 156 mph with a blood-alcohol level of 0.16% — twice the legal limit in Nevada — before his Corvette crashed into the rear of Tina Tintor’s vehicle before dawn on Nov. 2.
Ruggs is on house arrest with strict conditions while his criminal case proceeds. He posted $150,000 bail for his release from jail a week ago.
