KWTV/Oklahoma City is reporting on its news9.com website that sports director Dean Blevins has been hospitalized in the intensive care unit at OU Medical Center after falling on ice Monday. 

The Tulsa World has this on the accident:  “Blevins said this morning that he went outside to the check the condition of the streets Monday when he slipped and hit the back of his skull on the edge of the porch and driveway. He said doctors put several staples in his head to close the gash. He also said they performed several tests on him and were considering performing surgery.”

KWTV reports tonight Blevins is being evaluated for a subdural hematoma, and as of 4 p.m. local time was listed in “fair” condition.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Dean and his family.

UPDATE:  Oklahoma’s newsok.com reports this evening that Blevins had been on his way to work, but stepped outside his home in Edmond to check on the weather.  “I slid and hit the back of my head on a step,” Bevins told the site, “I laid outside for 45 minutes in my workout stuff.  I was unconscious for an undetermined amount of time until neighbors came over.”

newsok.com also quotes KWTV news director Blaise Labbe:  “We wish the best for him and our prayers are with his family.”
