Overview

COMPLAINT# 20140876524

The evidence, information, and other data led me to conclude:

On September 20.2014 between 2230 and 2245 James R. Bironas left his home at 101 Loring Court. Driver 1 then drove east on Battery Lane between Loring Court and Franklin Pike. At that intersection he was met by a group of people driven by Mr. Spencer Lathrop in a car to his left. Both parties turned left to Franklin Pike and according to the other party Driver I chased them on northbound Franklin at speeds of up "110 miles an hour." The members of this party assert Driver 1 followed them as far as Acklen Avenue. On southbound Franklin Pike between 2250 and 2303 on September 20. 2014 Ms. Cynthia Wilde observed Driver 1 following them. According to Ms. Wilde's statement Driver l passed them going west on Battery Lane. Prior to the crash Driver I drove in the curve east of the crash site at a speed of 73 miles per hour. traveled west on the north shoulder of Battery Lane for approximately 236 feet. struck a tree, rotated counterclockwise. and came to final rest in the creek bed below. According to statements from MNFD EMS Cameron Myers Driver 1 was dead on the scene but they transported him to VUMC because he was treated inside the ambulance. The Report of the Davidson County Medical revealed Driver 1 died from blunt force injuries. The toxicology report indicated a blood alcohol level of .218% and a controlled substance (diazepam) level of 9 ng/ml blood. The level of diazepam was less than the therapeutic level for the drug as listed on the Winek Toxicology Data Table (2001). The cause of the crash was Driver l's failure to maintain the proper lane and exceeding the posted speed limit. This case is now closed.

Around 2245 hours on Saturdav. the 20th dav of Sentember I was disnatched to the narkine garaee of Belmont Universitv near the intersection ofWedgewood Ave and 15th AveS. Officer Riddle and myselfmet with our comolainant Connor Fralev. and three other individuals who were all ridinl! in the same vehicle Mr Fralev stated to i me that he was a passentzer in the vehicle (a E_-lS01andJhev had been driving on Franklin Pke. Mr. Fralev stated that thev had come to an intersection at Franklin Pke and Batterv Ln when thev rolled up next to Mr. Bironas' vehicle (thev did not know the identitv of the oerson at this time). Mr. Fralev and his friends noticed that Mr. Bironas' car was makin_g_a weird noise and that it didn't sound good so they spoke to Mr. Bironas from their car window to let him know that it seemed like something was wroqg_ with his car. Mr. Fraley_stated to Police that Mr. Bironas looked over at them and stated "I'm 2oin2 to kill in your vehicle." Mr. Fraley_stated that he was shocked with what he had heard and he and the other passengers didn't know what to do. Mr. Fraley stated that they continued drivine but Mr. Bironas started to follow them in a reckless manner swervinp; all over the road and causing them to have to speed up to "60-70moh." Mr. Fraley stated thatthev had made a number of turns goinR: down streets such as South Douglas Ave and Acklen Ave trving to evade Mr. Bironas. Mr. Fraley stated that Mr. Bironas had come verv close to hitting their vehicle. Mr. Fralev told oolice that eventually,_near the intersection ofAcklen Ave and Wed_gewood Ave it. appeared that a police car had pulled behind Mr. Bironas' white SUV and made a traffic stop on it. I checked with our dispatch to see if a traffic stop had been initiated by anv officer in this area at the time Mr. Fraley had given me. Police dispatch stated that they didn't have record of a traffic stop occuring in that area. Mr. Fraley stated to me that he did not want a filed but he didn't know what to do while being chased so he called police bovine; that we could intervene and stop/find Mr. Bimnas' vehicle.

I responded to a 10-46 roll over at 890 Battery Lane where the witness stated that the driver of a white SUV was driving reckless and drove offthe road. When I arrived, I observed paramedics assessing the victim ofthe roll over in the back of the ambulance. I asked the district fire chief had they pronounced the driver deceased yet. He informed me they were on the phone with Vanderbilt who just advised that he was deceased. At that time I was informed the driver of the vehicle was Rob

Bironas. I informed Sergeant Fondaw the driver was deceased and to inform Sergeant Lovell who

·was the on duty fatal crash supervisor. I was later informed that the Paramedics transported the driver to Vanderbilt Hospital by Sergeant Fondaw.

TRAFFIC COLLISION REPORT INVESTIGATOR'S SUPPLEMENT

COMPLAINT# 20140876524

On Saturday the 20th day of September 2014 at 2354 hours I was notified of an apparent single vehicle, single occupant, DOA, and non-prosecutable fatal crash on Battery Lane at Dustin Lane. When I arrived on September 21st, 2014 at 0039 hours I observed Officer Johnson and SGT Lovell on the scene gathering information with Field CPT Starling and SGT Pachciarz. I observed a white GMC SUV (Vehicle I) on the creek bank on the north of the roadway with airbags deployed and the seatbelt in a worn position.

I observed a deciduous tree on the north shoulder of the roadway

south of Vehicle 1. This tree was damaged

with at least one limb missing as if it was struck by Vehicle 1. The body of the deceased, James R. Bironas, was removed from the scene and was transported to VUMC. I walked east from the tree and located a surface void. Approximately 113 feet east ofthis void I located a 123 foot 8.34 inch scrape running parallel to the roadway. Vegetation was pushed to a northwest position. This was the best evidence of a path of event travel for Vehicle 1. Officer Augustine was present and gathered other information pertinent to the crash. Officer Johnson and I

mapped the crash and once we completed this we began the recovery.

Officer Bell ofthe DUI unit was at VUMC with the deceased (Driver 1) and was met there by Officer Smith of Patrol. Officer Bell detected no sign of intoxication in the form of odor. Officer Smith and Lieutenant Gilliland maintained security at VUMC after Officer Bell left.

I learned of a call which was initiated by one Rachel Bradshaw (Driver 1's spouse) which was filed under complaint number 20140876787. At 2340 on September 20th, 2014 Ms. Bradshaw notified Emergency Communications her husband was missing. The text of the call gave details of his absence which allegedly began at 2140 hours. The originating address was 104 Loring Court which is less than .5 miles from the crash scene.

time as September 20 1 h, 2014 at

that her last actual siting of Driver 1 was between 2145 and 2200 at 104 Loring Ct. when he claimed to be going to bed. She stated she was unsure of the actual time because everything seemed ''normal" prior to his retiring for the night.

Another report was made by Mrs. Cynthia Wilde of Driver 1 attempting to force her vehicle off of the roadway as she drove on Franklin Road southbound near Caldwell. She stated that between 2245-2300 Driver I swerved toward them and forced them to shift left. Her passenger (Jamison Wilde) wrote Driver 11ooked at Cynthia "like he thought he knew her." Mr. Wilde stated they accelerated past him and came to the intersection at Battery where they were stopped by a red traffic signal. Mr. Wilde advised Driver I got close to them and gunned his engine "in a threatening manner." Mr. Wilde wrote after they turned right to Battery Driver 1 continued to follow them and tailgated while he swerved into the eastbound lane. The Wilde party claimed to have pulled over to the shoulder of the road to wait for him to pass. Mr. Wilde stated Driver 1 stopped in the eastbound lane and stared at them. Mr. Wilde advised he got out of their vehicle and asked Driver 1 "What do you want from us? What is your problem?" He stated a few seconds passed and Driver 1 "gunned the SUV and

On September 22nd, 2014 I learned of another party who encountered Driver I

prior to the crash. This party

consisted of 4 Belmont University students who observed Vehicle l eastbound on Battery Lane west of Franklin Pike. This party was going east on Battery Lane behind Vehicle I. The driver for this party was Mr. Spencer Lathrop. The passengers for this party were (seating positions 13-23 respectively) Connor Fraley, Karsyn Robb, and Meg Ricci. I interviewed each of these occupants individually between September 22nd and September 23rd. Each person in this party stated there was a strange odor and noise coming from Vehicle 1. They advised Vehicle l was in the straight lane on eastbound Battery at Franklin and Driver I 's window was open. They said Fraley advised Driver I there was a possible problem with Vehicle I. All of the occupants advised Driver I stated he

was going to "kill every [explicative] person in that vehicle." They stated they were away from this scene when they observed Vehicle I was following them. They advised they called Emergency Communications and attempted to evade Driver 1at high speeds on Franklin Pike going north from Thompson Lane. They stated when they reached 8th and Douglas they turned onto Douglas and lost him when they turned ]eft from Acklen to Wedgewood. They added they believed Driver 1 was stopped by police. They stated they went to Belmont University to await police. Below is the contact information for each member of this party:

I obtained a search warrant for the Airbag Control Module for Vehicle 1. I served the search warrant with Officer Jessie Loy performing data extraction. The analysis and report ofthe data analysis was completed by SGT. Burke. Officer Loy and SGT Burke are members of the MNPD Crash Investigation Unit and are certified in data extraction. SGT Burke is credentialed to analysis and report on this data. Our data analysis indicated a speed for Vehicle l of73 MPH up to .5 seconds prior to algorithm enable. The brake switch was not activated and Driver 1's seatbelt was buckled. (See Search Warrant EDR and Onboard Event Data.)

I also obtained a search warrant for the Apple iPhone device located on the person of Driver 1, and a court order for Verizon records pertaining to his account. With these instruments I would be able to discover if there was information which would aid me in determining Driver I 's actions during the moments leading up to and during the crash event.

which was furnished to me by Driver 1's spouse. Verizon responded with the information I requested from them. In both instances I observed Driver 1's last call prior to his death was an incoming call at 2056 on September 20, 2014 from his spouse. The last text message prior to his death was a "sent" text on Septemher 20, 2014 at 2119.

I was notified ofthe existence ofCCTV footage of Driver 1 leaving his home on Loring Ct. I attempted to review the video footage but the file would not load. I opted instead to view stills of the footage which showed Driver 1 left his property and neighborhood on September 20,2014 between 2239 and 2240 according to the timestamp. The footage and was provided by Driver 1's brother Greg Bironas.

All ofthe aforementioned evidence and information led me to conclude on September 20,2014 between 2230 and 2245 Driver I left his home at I 01 Loring Court. Driver 1 then drove east on Battery Lane between Loring Court and Franklin Pike. At that intersection he was met by a group of people driven by Mr. Spencer Lathrop in a car to his left. Both parties turned left to Franklin Pike and according to the other party Driver I chased them on northbound Franklin at speeds of up "110 miles an hour." The members ofthis party assert Driver 1 followed them as far as Acklen Avenue. On southbound Franklin Pike between 2250 and 2303 on September 20,2014 Ms. Cynthia Wilde observed Driver 1 following them. According to Ms. Wilde's statement Driver 1 passed them going west on Battery Lane. Prior to the crash Driver 1 drove in the curve east of the crash site at a speed of 73 miles per hour, traveled west on the north shoulder of Battery Lane for approximately 236 feet, struck a tree, rotated counterclockwise, and came to final rest in the creek bed below. According to statements from MNFD EMS Cameron Myers Driver 1 was dead on the scene but they transported him to VUMC because he was treated inside the ambulance. The Report of the Davidson County Medical revealed Driver 1 died from blunt force injuries. The toxicology report indicated a blood alcohol level of .218% and a controlled substance (diazepam) level of 9 ng/ml blood. The level of diazepam was less than the therapeutic level for the drug as listed on the Winek Toxicology Data Table (2001). The cause of the crash was Driver 1's failure to maintain the proper lane and exceeding the posted speed limit. This case is now closed.

On Saturday, 09/20/201.4, at 2303 hours, I was notified by Sgt. Pachciarz that he needed the fatal team to respond to a traffic crash on Battery Lane because the driver had been killed. While enroute, Sgt. Pachciarz called me back and advised that the driver, who initially had been deemed deceased by EMS, had now been transport to Vanderbilt Medical Center. I then had the dispatcher notify the on call crash investigators and asked that they respond. I also notified Lt. Michael Gilliland, Traffic Division supervisor, of the crash. When I arrived at the scene, I found that patrol officers had blocked all access to Battery Lane and were diverting traffic away from the crash scene. As I exited my patrol car I was approached by the acting District 8 EMS Chief, who handed me a form documenting how they extracted the driver. I asked this acting District Chief why the driver was transported to Vanderbilt Medical Center if he was deceased upon extraction. He told me, "Basically because he was Rob Bironis." He then left the scene. I then began to coordinate with Mid Town Hills units, responding traffic units, on call Chaplains, Captain Starling, and Don Aaron to request, and manage resources on the scene or still responding. I also completed a MNPD Vehicle Tow report, and hold form for the crashed vehicle, and monitored the scene while the crash investigators were completing their investigation.

I WAS DISPATCH TO 401 LORING CT. IN REFERENCE TO A MISSING PERSON. THE COMPLAINANT RACHEL BRADSHAW STATED THAT SHE WANTED TO REPORT HER HUSBAND, JAMES BIRONAS, WAS MISSING.

ACCORDING TO RACHEL BRADSHAW, SHE WAS WITH HER HUSBAND AND A FRIEND, JENNA PAGE, DURING THE EVENING. THEY WERE WATCHING A MOVIE IN THE MOVIE ROOM INSIDE THEIR RESIDENCE AT 401 LORING COURT. AT APPROXIMATELY 10:30 P.M. JAM ED BIRONAS TOLD HER "GOODNIGHT" AND LEFT THE ROOM. SHE ASSUMED HE WAS GOING TO BED.

AFTER A FEW MOMENTS, SHE SPOKE TO HER FRIEND JENNA PAGE, WHO WAS STILL PRESENT WITH HER IN THE MOVIE ROOM. SHE THEN WENT TO FIND JAMES BIRONAS. SHE SEARCHED THROUGHOUT THE RESIDENCE AND COULD NOT LOCATE HIM.

RACHEL BRADSHAW CALLED JAMES BIRONAS NUMEROUS TIME AND DID NOT RECEIVE AN ANSWER. SHE CALLED RELATIVES AND NO ONE HAD CONTACT WITH HIM. SHE THEN CALLED POLICE BECAUSE SHE WAS CONCERNED.

RACHEL BRADSHAW STATED THERE WAS NO ARGUMENT PRIOR TO JAMES BIRONAS LEAVING THE RESIDENCE. SHE STATED IT WAS HIGHLY UNUSUAL BEHAVIOR FOR HIM TO LEAVE WITHOUT TELLING HER. SHE STATED HE WAS NOT INTOXICATED.
