USA Today reports that Blaylock, real name Daron Oshay Blaylock, and his two passengers were airlifted to a nearby hospital. A woman in the other vehicle was also taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Blaylock is reportedly unresponsive at the hospital.

Sadly, this is only one of many car crashes to hit the news cycle this week. A family of four was killed in a car crash over Memorial Day Weekend,five teenagers were killed in a car crash in California, and earlier this week seven people were killed when a tractor trailer disconnected from its truck and crossed the highway.
