Former NBA All-Star Mookie Blaylock has been indicted on 14 charges including vehicular homicide, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

According to the reports, Baylock was indicted by a grand jury in Georgia Wednesday in relation to a head-on vehicle collision on May 31, 2013 which left a mother of five dead and her husband injured.

The 47-year-old could face up to 33 years in prison if convicted of the charges which included first-degree vehicular homicide, reckless driving and a count of serious injury by vehicle.

Blaylock himself was left on life support following the incident but handed himself into police after being released.

As reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution at the time of the accident, one family member reported to police that Blaylock has been receiving treatment for seizures prior to the crash.

Blaylock made the 1994 All-Star team as well as the NBA's All-Defensive first team on two occasions, and played for New Jersey, the Atlanta Hawks and the Golden State Warriors during his pro career before retiring in 2002.

Since then however Blaylock has had a number of run ins with the law, including serving 30 days jail time in relation to a DUI and hit-and-run charge dating back to March 2013.
