Police in the Dallas suburb where a Cowboys player was killed in a car accident have released audiotapes of two 911 calls reporting the crash.

Defensive tackle Josh Brent faces an intoxicated manslaughter charge in Saturday morning's accident that killed teammate Jerry Brown. Brent is free on bond. Police and prosecutors met Thursday to discuss the case.

Irving police on Thursday released tapes of two callers reporting an overturned vehicle. Both callers said smoke or fire appeared to be coming from the car. Police also released dash-cam video that shows an overturned vehicle.

According to an arrest affidavit, officers who arrived found Brent pulling Brown from the wreck. Police say they have not yet received the results of a blood-alcohol test, though the Dallas Morning News reported Thursday that his blood alcohol level was 0.18.
