Ex-NBA player Jayson Williams was taken to the hospital early Tuesday morning after being injured in a car crash.

Police believe he may have been drinking and driving although he tried to move to the passenger seat before police arrived.

Witnesses to the crash say they saw Williams driving and police report that no one else was in the car.

NYPD suspect that he had been drinking before the crash at 3:00 a.m. when he veered his black Mercedes SUV off an exit. He was taken to New York’s Bellevue Hospital.

Williams is still awaiting his retrial for the reckless manslaughter case against him for the alleged shooting of his driver in 2002.

The trial reached a deadlocked jury previously in 2004.
