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, 43, 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.
Blaylock is accused of crossing the center of Tara Boulevard, causing a head-on wreck that killed Monica Murphy, a front-seat passenger in the other vehicle, according to police.
Blaylock was seriously injured and remained Monday at Atlanta Medical Center.
