The 21-year-old firefighter remains in critical condition after his emergency vehicle collided with another fire truck while battling a fire on the Drummond Ranch in Oklahoma, the state’s highway patrol told local news outlet News On 6.
Law enforcement revealed the hard impact ejected Ree’s nephew from the truck and he continues to be treated at a nearby hospital.
OHP claimed that high winds across grass and gravel are to blame for the two cars colliding head-on.
Another person who was involved and identified is Ree’s husband-of-25-years, 52-year-old Ladd.
Fortunately, Ladd does not have any reported injuries.
Osage County Emergency Management Director Jerry Roberts told the outlet each vehicle “only had one firefighter in it.”
It was also revealed they collided on each truck’s driver side and that the firefighters involved are “ranch employees.”
Osage Nation fire crews said more than 200 acres have been burned.
In previous posts on the website “The Pioneer Woman,” Ree Drummond has mentioned a nephew she called Caleb Drummond.
