JONESBORO, Ga. — Former NBA All-Star Daron “Mookie” Blaylock has been charged with vehicular homicide arising from a head-on crash in suburban Atlanta, authorities announced Monday.


Blaylock, 46, is also charged with driving on a suspended license and failure to maintain his lane in the Friday crash, Jonesboro Police Chief Franklin Allen said.


Blaylock was driving an SUV that crossed the center line of Tara Boulevard — about 20 miles south of downtown Atlanta — and struck a van, police said. A van passenger, 43-year-old Monica Murphy, died hours later. Her husband, who was also in the van, was treated and released at a hospital.


Blaylock was also wanted in Spalding County on charges of failure to appear in court, DUI and drug possession, Allen said.


Atlanta Medical Center spokeswoman Nicole Gustin said Blaylock was in fair condition Monday. He initially was on life support at the hospital, but his condition was upgraded.


Allen said police are working to determine the cause of the crash and that alcohol doesn’t appear to be a factor.
