Rep. Dewey Hill fell at his Lake Waccamaw home this weekend and injured his neck. He stumbled on his way to get some ice cream from his deep freezer - according to Whiteville.com.
An ambulance took Hill to a New Hanover County orthopedic center.
Hill is expected to be released this afternoon, but may have to wear a neck brace for a short time. No lingering effects are expected, he said by telephone this morning.
