As per the Jonesboro police, Blaylock was travelling northbound on Tara Boulevard and then allegedly went across the median and into on-coming traffic, crashing head-on into a husband and wife who were travelling in a van.
Blaylock’s medical condition has improved from critical to serious according to the article. Monica Murphy, the passenger in the van, underwent multiple surgeries, however, did not survive the tramatic crash. Her husband, Frankie Murphy, the driver, was discharged from the hospital.
