A family spokesman says former Mississippi Gov. William Winter is in intensive care with a concussion after falling on the steep, icy driveway of his Jackson home.

University of Mississippi Medical Center spokeswoman Alana Bowman says the 93-year-old Winter was in serious condition Saturday.

Former Winter staff member Dick Molpus, speaking for the ex-governor's family, says a neurologist told them Winter is responding well and his prognosis for recovery is good.

Ice remained on roads in central Mississippi after sleet fell Friday during a winter storm system that pushed through the South.

Democrat Winter was governor from 1980 to 1984 and is best known for pushing lawmakers to enact the Education Reform Act of 1982, which for the first time required Mississippi's public schools to offer kindergarten.
