(Oklahoma City) State Senator Larry Dickerson remains in critical condition at an Oklahoma City hospital. Family members said Dickerson slipped into an irreversible coma Wednesday.
The Poteau legislator was admitted late Tuesday night after feeling ill. Dickerson, who has been battling cancer for the past three years, has been recovering from a series of treatments and surgery related to the disease in recent months.
Dickerson (D-Poteau) was elected to the Oklahoma State Senate in 1986 to represent the people of Senate District 4 in Leflore and Sequoyah counties. He serves as chairman of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on General Government and Transportation.
