On Saturday night, former Titans kicker Rob Bironas died after he was involved in a one-car accident that took place after he reportedly lost control of his speeding SUV and crashed it into several trees in Nashville, Tenn. And now, Nashville police have released a 911 call that was made by a woman who saw Bironas just moments before he crashed, and it may help shed some light on what caused the accident.

According to the woman who placed the 911 call—which you can hear in the clip above—Bironas was traveling at a high rate of speed on Saturday night and tried to run the woman and her husband off the road. The couple let Bironas pass them, but a short time later, they came upon the scene of his accident and called 911.

"He is dangerous," the woman said after calling 911. "He is drunk or something. He tried to start a fight with us. My husband ran down there to see what is going on. I just want to tell the police there is something wrong with him. He is dangerous, he is drunk, or he is on drugs. There is something wrong with him. He gave us a mean look. We don't even know him, and he tried to run us off the road."

Nashville police are continuing to investigate Bironas' accident. But in addition to the 911 call, they've also released one other tidbit of information. They say that, on Saturday night, Bironas' wife Rachel Bradshaw called them and reported her husband missing. He had reportedly told her "goodnight" at around 10:30 p.m. and gone to bed. But when she went to check on him, she realized that he wasn't in their home and he didn't respond to several phone calls that she made to him.

Stay tuned for additional details about the accident.


According to The Tennesseean, Bironas chased a truck with two college students in it on Saturday night after they pulled up next to him and told him that his exhaust didn't smell right.

"His window was down, and we pulled up and I said, 'Hey man, just a heads up, something's burning from your exhaust. Your exhaust smells horrible, just wanted to let you know,''' 20-year-old Connor Fraley reportedly told Bironas. "He looked over at me and said, 'I'm going to kill everybody in your (expletive) vehicle.' It was so random, so bizarre. I was like, 'What?' And he said the exact same thing again."

That reportedly led to a brief chase with the two vehicles reaching speeds of over 100 mph. But Fraley and his passengers (there were two females in the truck at the time in the back seat) were eventually able to lose Bironas.
