A 911 call from a woman at the scene of the fatal Las Vegas car crash involving an NFL wide receiver, Henry Ruggs, detailed the chaos that unfolded after the collision, TMZ Sports reported.

“Oh my God, they can’t get no one to help, the whole thing is on fire,” the woman says on the call, TMZ Sports reported. “All I see is flames.”

“It’s almost all gone, and I think someone’s in it,” she adds. Ruggs is accused of killing a 23-year-old woman during the Nov. 3 accident and faces felony DUI charges, Fox News reported.

Ruggs was allegedly driving 156 mph moments before the crash, with a blood alcohol level of twice the legal limit, chief deputy district attorney Eric Bauman, said in court. The former Raiders star and his girlfriend were left seriously injured.

The woman says “the kids are just yelling for help,” but says that the flames were so high “you can’t get near it.”
