The Pawhuska Fire Department confirmed to Fox News that Caleb was taken to the hospital by ambulance after being ejected from a vehicle when two fire trucks collided. He is reportedly battling serious injuries.
Ladd, Ree’s 52-year-old spouse, was taken to the hospital as well, but refused treatment, as his injuries were not severe.
According to the local Fox23 news, two fire trucks collided on County Road N3660 while responding to a fire.
“Due to high winds on a gravel road, visibility was decreased causing Vehicle-1 and Vehicle-2 to hit head-on,” troopers said in a statement to the outlet. “[Caleb Drummond] was ejected approximately 70 feet from point of rest.”
The trooper told Fox News that it took two to three hours to fight the fire.
Citing a report provided by the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety, USA Today reports that Caleb, 21, is in “critical condition” with several injuries, including to his head, arm and leg.
According to the outlet, he’s been transported to a hospital in Tulsa, Okla., where Ladd refused treatment.
Drummond is a TV personality and food author who is well known as the “Pioneer Woman.” It seems that she and her nephew are close, as she has mentioned him on her blog several times.
A rep for Drummond did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
