Mookie Blaylock is facing a second-degree vehicular homicide charge after a car accident last week.

Former NBA player Mookie Blaylock was charged with second-degree vehicular homicide on Monday following a car accident last week, according to a report from Sports Illustrated.

Blaylock's car allegedly swerved over the median and into oncoming traffic on Friday, resulting in a head-on collision which killed a 40-year-old woman. In addition, Blaylock 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.

The 46-year-old Blaylock was seriously injured in the crash and was initially put on life support. He was upgraded to serious condition on Saturday, but remains hospitalized. Blaylock played 13 seasons in the NBA, including seven seasons with the Atlanta Hawks. He made the 1994 All-Star team while playing for the Hawks.

Blaylock has been getting treatment for seizures, but it's still unclear whether that condition played any part in the accident.
