‘The Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond’s nephew and husband were involved in a collision Wednesday while battling a fire on the Drummond Ranch, officials confirm.
Her nephew, 21-year-old Caleb Drummond is in the hospital in critical condition and her husband, Ladd Drummond did not have any reported injuries, Oklahoma Highway Patrol said.
OHP said due to high winds across grass and gravel, the two vehicles collided head-on and Caleb was ejected from the truck.
The report said Caleb did not have his seatbelt on. It also said there was not a seatbelt equipped in Ladd’s firetruck.
Osage County Emergency Management Director Jerry Roberts said each vehicle only had one firefighter in it and they collided on each truck’s driver side. He said the two firefighters are ranch employees.
Osage Nation fire crews said more than 200 acres have been burned.
This is a developing story.
