From the NY Daily News:
NEW YORK — Authorities say former NBA player Jayson Williams was taken to a hospital with minor injuries after his SUV struck a tree in New York City.
The New York Police Department says it appears Williams may have been drinking before the crash at 3:15 a.m. Tuesday on a northbound exit of the FDR Drive. He has not been charged.
Williams was in the passenger seat when officers arrived. But witnesses told police they saw him in the driver’s seat. Officers say no one else was in the car.
