Winston-Salem, NC -- Former Guilford County Commissioner Billy Yow's condition is improving, according to a Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center representative.
The representative says the hospital recently upgraded his condition from critical to serious.
While no further information was immediately available, this could be a good sign for the commissioner, who was taken off his ventilator Friday evening.
Yow, who served as commissioner for 12 years, was involved in a well drilling accident in Colfax, which sent him to the hospital with head injuries Thursday.
