The accident that left former NBA All-Star Mookie Blaylock in serious condition left another woman dead.
Police investigating the accident had been waiting to talk to Blaylock, who was on life support right after the accident, but now that they have spoken to him he faces some serious charges, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.
Former NBA and Hawks star Daron “Mookie” Blaylock was charged Monday with second-degree vehicular homicide for allegedly causing the wreck that killed a 40-year-old woman.
Blaylock, 46, was also charged with improper lane change, driving on the wrong side of the road, driving on a suspended license and crossing into the median for the Friday afternoon wreck in Jonesboro, the Clayton County Solicitor told Channel 2 Action News. All of the charges are misdemeanors.
Police said this was a head-on collision that left Monica Murphy dead and others hospitalized. I’m not going to speculate on what precipitated this tragedy, there are no other charges right now.
Blaylock had a 13-year NBA career, seven of those years with the Hawks. He was a lock-down defender who played a solid, old-school point guard game.
