Four-wheeler wreck puts Norphlet man in critical condition

A 44-year-old Norphlet man remains in critical condition at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences after he was discovered unconscious next to his inverted four-wheeler Saturday night at Gas Plant and Hayes City roads.

Jerry Womack was traveling with a group of family and friends late Saturday when he sped ahead on his own, according to a Union County Sheriff’s Office report. He was later found unresponsive next to his four-wheeler by two family members who turned the four-wheeler over and tried unsuccessfully to revive him.

Womack was initially transported by ProMed Ambulance to the Norphlet football field to be airlifted to UAMS, but complications forced a quicker airlift to the Medical Center of South Arkansas. He was then stabilized and airlifted to Little Rock.

On Monday he remained in critical condition, according to a media relations representative of UAMS. No other information was available for public release.
