Dallas police have released new information on the December 7 wreck that claimed the life of Cowboys practice squad player Jerry Brown Jr. According to information obtained by local affiliate NBC 5, Josh Brent, who survived the wreck, was driving at least 110 mph, and possibly as much as 134 mph, before the wreck. Police have already said that Brent's blood-alcohol content was more than twice the legal limit.

The car flipped when Brent lost control after hitting a curb at more than 100 mph. Neither Brent nor Brown was wearing a seat belt.

Two calls to 911 were made from inside Brent's car. In one, the only sound audible is the clicking of a blinker. Brent has said that the car's steering was "a little shaky," but a police inspection found nothing wrong with the vehicle.

Per NBC 5, this is the timeline of the accident:

11:15 p.m.: Brent and some teammates were at Eddie V’s in the Oak Lawn section of Dallas.
