Former Tennessee Titans kicker Rob Bironas was traveling more than double the posted speed limit when he crashed his SUV and was killed on Sept. 20, according the final report released Friday by Metro police.

The report stated Bironas was traveling 73 mph when he crashed in the 800 block of Battery Lane, just one mile from the home he shared with his wife Rachel. The posted speed limit is 35 mph.

His blood alcohol content was .218 percent, nearly three times the legal limit, and a low level of Valium was also detected in his system.

According to report, Bironas died on the scene but was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center “basically because he was Rob Bironas.”

The medical examiner determined Bironas died of blunt force trauma. He was wearing his seatbelt.

Bironas was released by the Titans earlier this year after playing nine seasons with the team.

He was 36 years old at the time of his death.
