Former NBA player Jayson Williams was hospitalized after crashing his SUV into a tree at a northbound exist of the FDR Drive in Manhattan this morning.

Although Williams hasn’t been charged, the New York Police Department said it appeared he had been drinking.

The former New Jersey Nets big man pulled the old switch-over-to-the-passenger-seat after the crash, and told police he wasn’t driving, according to witnesses.

Apparently, no one else was in the car. It doesn’t work so well when that happens.

Williams is scheduled to be retried on the reckless manslaughter count that produced a deadlocked jury in 2004, which stemmed out of fatal shooting of his then-driver in 2002.
