A Conway man was critically injured Friday when his vehicle rolled several times on Interstate 40 and came to rest in a wooded area nearby.

According to Arkansas State Trooper Coty Williams, the subject lost control of his vehicle in the westbound lane of I-40 near the 133 mile marker at Mayflower.

Wreck assessment shows that the subject entered the median and traveled 150 feet before reentering the roadway and overturning several times before the vehicle settled on its side near the road.

Williams said that the vehicle, a gray 2004 Ford Ranger pickup, traveled 550 feet before coming to rest.

The subject, whose name has not been released pending notification of family members, was transported via MedFlight to Baptist Medical Center in Little Rock.

According to Baptist, the man, whose condition is listed as stable, was being treated for his injuries in the emergency room at 2 p.m.

The accident occurred just after 11 a.m. Friday.

Initial reports on emergency radio frequency stated that the man had suffered a severe head injury.

Williams said that at this time, it is not known what caused the subject to lose control of his vehicle and the wreck's cause has been determined to be "careless driving."
