Roderic Scott Cause of Death
When the accident occurred, Ruggs was driving a Chevrolet Corvette at “high speed” north on Rainbow. Finally, he collided with a Toyota Rav4 SUV from behind, which caught fire. The driver, a 23-year-old Las Vegas woman trapped in her seat, died. Police said 22-year-old Ruggs, who remained at the scene, showed signs of deterioration. He and a female passenger were injured in the accident.
In 2016, Ruggs and Scott were supposed to travel to the game together. However, Ruggs later fell ill with the flu and planned not to attend. That day, 17-year-old Scott had to be thrown out of a car that had rolled over along a rain-covered Interstate 65. He was one of three untethered passengers who were ejected.
Scott, who was immediately airlifted to a hospital, suffered serious internal injuries, including a swollen brain and two collapsed lungs. Several surgeries failed to save Scott’s life. “The original plan was that we were going to go there [to Birmingham] and we were going to drive ourselves because I was going to be the one to escort him, they were going to be a couple of our teammates,” Ruggs had told the Montgomery Advertiser on 2018. “But once I got sick, I thought I didn’t need to go anywhere. And that hit me, but I didn’t even know how to think about it.”

“You know, everything happens for a reason, but you never know. If I was driving, maybe it would have been the two of us, but just think about what other kinds of situations could have happened or would have disappeared. About whether I had never gotten sick,” Ruggs had said.
Every time he scores a touchdown, Ruggs salutes Scott with three fingers in tribute to his elementary school friend. “[It’s about] telling him that he’s here with me all the time, he’s the one who didn’t necessarily drive me to play soccer, but he helped me with the mindset that you’re never good enough, you can always improve.” Ruggs had said, “He was one of the best basketball players in the state and he was constantly training, constantly training … That just pushed me to work harder and do everything. And when I lost him, it was like, I can’t stop now.” . Ruggs even has a tattoo of something Scott used to tell people: “I’ll do something great. I’ll be something great.”
Following the November 2 accident, Ruggs will be charged imminently with driving under the influence resulting in death. “On behalf of our client Henry Ruggs III, we are conducting our own investigation at the time of this writing and we ask everyone to reserve the trial until all the facts are collected,” stated his attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld.
