A former NBA All-Star is facing vehicular manslaughter charges in connection with a Georgia car crash that killed a 40-year-old woman last Friday.

According to a report from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, 46-year-old Mookie Blaylock, who starred for the NBA's Atlanta Hawks during a 13-year career was charged this week with second-degree vehicular homicide and other charges for allegedly causing the crash.

Blaylock has also been charged with misdemeanor counts of making an improper lane change, driving on the wrong side of the road, driving on a suspended license and crossing into the median, according to the AJC report.
