The Times said former Nets star Jayson Williams was “slightly hurt” in his early-morning alleged-DUI crash, but TMZ says that he fractured his neck. The Post assures readers Williams has not been paralyzed.
Williams ran his Mercedes into a tree as he was coming off the FDR Drive at 20th Street around 3 a.m.; he refused a breathalyzer test, but cops suspect he’d been drinking.
Williams isn’t doing so hot in general. He awaits retrial in the fatal 2002 shooting of his limo driver; in February his wife filed for divorce; in April he had what appeared to be a psychotic episode and was taken into custody.
