NC legislator remains critical after wreck


WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) -- State Rep. Larry Womble remains in critical but stable condition at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center following a head-on collision in Winston-Salem near his home that killed another driver.

Family spokeswoman Tanya Wiley says doctors are pleased that the 70-year-old Womble was resting well Sunday.

Police say 54-year-old David Allen Carmichael of Winston-Salem died at the scene Friday night when his 1996 Chrysler convertible collided with Womble's 2010 Acura sedan. The police investigation into the crash continues.

Womble, D-Forsyth, has been in the House since 1995.
