NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Former Tennessee Titans defensive tackle Rien Long has improved to stable condition after he crashed his sports car into a rock wall while driving onto an interstate.
Nashville Police said the 26-year-old Long was driving too fast down an on-ramp to Interstate 40 near downtown just before midnight Monday.
Vanderbilt University Medical Center officials say Long's condition has steadily improved over the last 24 hours.
His 2005 Ford Mustang started sliding at the bottom of the ramp, went up the embankment and hit a rock wall on the driver's side before rolling over onto the roof.
A passenger, 28-year-old Wesley Stephens, was treated for non-critical injuries.
