Former NBA star and Hawks player Mookie Blaylock’s condition was upgraded from critical to serious Saturday, a day after he was involved in a head-on collision in Clayton County that left a woman dead.

Blaylock, 46, was driving a Cadillac Escalade northbound on Tara Boulevard when for unknown reasons, he crossed over the median and into a southbound lane around 1 p.m., Jonesboro police Chief Franklin Allen told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Blaylock’s vehicle struck another vehicle head-on, injuring two people, Frankie and Monica Murphy, and himself, Allen said.

All three were transported to Atlanta Medical Center, where Blaylock was flown and was on life support and unresponsive Friday afternoon, Allen said. Monica Murphy, 40, died Friday evening at the hospital, Allen said.
