ATLANTA (AP) -- Former NBA All-Star guard Daron "Mookie" Blaylock has been upgraded to serious condition a day after his SUV crashed head-on into a van and killed a woman.

Atlanta Medical Center spokeswoman Nicole Gustin said Saturday that the 46-year-old Blaylock had been upgraded to serious condition. On Friday, the hospital listed Blaylock in critical condition, and police said the former Atlanta Hawks player had been placed on life support for a short time.

Jonesboro Police Chief Franklin Allen said Blaylock was driving Friday afternoon in the Atlanta suburb of Jonesboro when his SUV crossed the center line and crashed head-on into a van with two people inside.

The van's passenger, 43-year-old Monica Murphy, was killed. Her husband broke an ankle.
