Vlade Divac's father dies in car crash

BELGRADE, Serbia -- Serbian police say the father of former NBA center Vlade Divac has died in a car crash.

Police say on Wednesday that 77-year-old Milenko Divac died at a hospital after the car he was in struck a pole and overturned several times near Cacak, central Serbia, on Tuesday. Divac's 72-year-old mother, Radmila, who was reportedly driving the car, was seriously injured but is expected to survive.

Divac, who heads the Serbian Olympic Committee, started and ended his 16-year NBA career with the Los Angeles Lakers. From 1989 to 2005 he played for the Lakers, Sacramento Kings, and Charlotte Hornets (now New Orleans Pelicans), and was an All-Star in 2001.

It's very sad, and having seen the ESPN film on his good friend Dražen Petrović who also died in a car crash, this has to be awful as well as bring up those same painful memories again.

The only thing worse than dying in a car crash is possibly causing a car crash and surviving where others perished. My sympathies to the Divac family, and Radmila in particular. Hopefully it was a blowout that caused the crash. RIP, Milenko.

Very sad, my condolences to Vlade and his family. Vlade is a great guy (I played against him few times when we were very young).

Vlade Divac’s Mother Faces 12 Years In Prison

CACAK – Police in Cacak has filed a criminal complaint against Radmila Divac (72) on suspicion of causing a serious car accident on Christmas, January 7th, that fatally injured her husband Milenko (77). The criminal complaint is filed for the offense against traffic safety, Kurir reported.

According to the law, the penalty for the offense is 2 to 12 years in prison.

“The body of Milenko Divac is in autopsy so the exact cause of death would be determined. He suffered of a serious heart condition, he had three by-passes done, so the possibility that he died of cardiac shock after the car fell off the road and turned is not excluded,” said a source for Kurir.

Oh God, no!! Couldn't they be more specific? Isn't there such a thing as an 'accident' there?
