Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - Former NBA star Mookie Blaylock is reportedly in critical condition following a car accident in Georgia.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Friday that Blaylock was one of three people injured in a head-on collision in Clayton County.

Jonesboro police Chief Franklin Allen told the paper that Blaylock was driving a Cadillac Escalade northbound on Tara Boulevard when for unknown reasons, he crossed over the median and into oncoming traffic.

Blaylock's vehicle struck another vehicle head-on, injuring two people in that car. All three were transported to Atlanta Medical Center, where Blaylock was on life support and unresponsive.

The female passenger in the struck car died Friday evening, while Blaylock's condition had improved and he was removed from life support. He remained in guarded, but critical condition.

Blaylock has been under treatment for seizures, a family member told police.

The 46-year-old Blaylock, a point guard, played for the Atlanta Hawks from 1992 to 1999. A two-time, first-team pick to the NBA's All-Defensive Team, Blaylock, also played for the Nets (1989-1992) and Warriors (1999-2002), averaging 13.5 points and 6.7 assists per game over the course of his career.

Address records show Blaylock, whose real name is Daron, lives in Zebulon in Pike County.
