Retired basketball star Daron “Mookie” Blaylock looks to be in serious trouble following a fatal accident in Georgia on Friday.

The former Atlanta Hawks star was driving an SUV that collided head-on with a van killing a 43-year-old woman, Monica Murphy and injuring her husband Frankie.

Mookie himself remains hospitalized and faces two charges of driving on a suspended license and failing to stay in his lane. More charges could come following the investigation.

According to The Associated Press, Blaylock lives on a six-acre property near Zebulon, Ga., about 30 miles south of the accident scene in Jonesboro.

Bryan Bennett, a brother-in-law of Blaylock who was at the house Saturday taking care of two of Blaylock’s youngest children, said doctors operated in the morning on Blaylock’s broken ankle.

Blaylock, who also played for the New Jersey Nets and Golden State Warriors over a 13-year NBA career, was an All-Star in 1994 while with the Hawks.

No word yet on what caused the wreck but it’s been reported that Blaylock has suffered from seizures in the past.

This is just sad all the way around and our condolences go out to the Murphy family.
