A Winfield man has been upgraded to serious condition this today following an accident early Tuesday in which his vehicle overturned at the fairgrounds in Winfield.

Dirk Flower, 33, is hospitalized at Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. His family reports, through social media, that Flower is conscious and alert, though his injuries will require surgery to repair.

He previously had been listed in critical condition.

Flower was hurt in an accident that occurred around 12:45 a.m. as he exited the fairgrounds. His vehicle ended up on its top on the north side of Ninth Ave., according to Winfield police.

Flower was unconscious at the scene and trapped inside the vehicle. He was eventually freed from the wreckage and transported to William Newton Hospital in Winfield.

After treatment there, he was transported by air ambulance to Wichita.

So far, authorities have released little additional information about the crash. Flower’s was the only vehicle involved in the accident.
