NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A woman tells a 911 dispatcher former Titans kicker Rob Bironas was driving erratically just before his SUV crashed.

The 911 call was obtained Monday by several media outlets.

The woman tells the dispatcher neither she nor her husband recognized the man who drove up behind them. She says he pulled his SUV up beside their vehicle and gave them a look before speeding away. The woman told the dispatcher the man was dangerous and police needed to know something was wrong with him.

A Metro Nashville police spokesman says the accident investigation is ongoing. An autopsy was performed.

The Tennessean reported Monday night Bironas' wife reported him missing to police Saturday night.

Bironas died Saturday night. Police said he was speeding when he lost control in a curve.
