Chris Henry‘s fiancee claims the Cincinnati Bengals star “jumped” from the truck she was driving on that day he was fatally injured — but he wasn’t trying to kill himself.

Loleini Tonga finally opened up to ESPN‘s “Outside the Lines,” saying

“I think he thought maybe he was gonna land … he was gonna land right?” She added, “He wouldn’t want to be gone away from his kids.”

When asked why she didn’t just stop the car, Tonga explained,

“I was gonna stop, but there was nowhere to stop on that road.”
