Mookie Blaylock in critical condition following car crash; one person dies

Former NBA guard Mookie Blaylock is in critical condition following a car accident in Clayton County, Ga., on Friday afternoon, Jonesboro, Ga., police chief Franklin Allen told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Blaylock was first reported to be on life support following the crash by officials. But by Friday evening, his condition had improved and he was considered to be in guarded, but critical condition, according to the newspaper. Blaylock has been under treatment for seizures, a family member told police. It was not known if that contributed to the accident or if Blaylock would face charges, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Authorities said that Blaylock was driving northbound on Tara Boulevard in Jonesboro, Georgia in an SUV when he crossed the median and crashed head-on into an oncoming van carrying two people.

Monica Murphy, 43, was one of the two people traveling in the van and died from her injuries on Friday night, just before 10 p.m, Allen said. Her husband, Frankie Murphy, 41, sustained a broken ankle and was released from the hospital after undergoing treatment, Allen said.

At the time of the accident, officials said that Blaylock was unresponsive at the hospital and airlifted to Atlanta Medical Center in critical condition.

Allen told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday evening that Blaylock had an outstanding warrant out of Spalding County, Ga. on DUI and drug charges for failure to appeal in court.

“We are saddened to hear of the accident today involving Mookie Blaylock and the Murphy family and the ensuing passing of Monica Murphy,” the Atlanta Hawks organization said in statement released to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Friday night. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of all involved.”

Blaylock, 46, played 13 seasons in the NBA with the then-New Jersey Nets, Hawks and Golden State Warriors. He retired in 2002 with 11,962 points, 5,972 assists and 2,075 steals for his career. He averaged 13.5 points and 6.2 assists.

Blaylock appeared in the 1994 NBA All-Star game as a member of the Atlanta Hawks and had his best season in 1996-97 (again with the Hawks), averaging 17.4 points and 5.9 assists.

His legal first name is Daron

How trashed was he and what do you think he was high on, being that it was a Friday afternoon?
He was either on a multi day coke binge or he got the dope nods from pain killers
