PIONEER Woman Ree Drummons has revealed her nephew Caleb and husband Ladd “will be okay” after the horrific truck crash at their ranch.
The 21-year-old suffered injuries to his head, internal torso, arm and leg, and is still in hospital at St. John Medical Center in Tulsa.
Pioneer Woman Ree, 52, gave a statement today updating fans on the condition of her nephew, Caleb, and husband, Ladd.
The homestyle chef and TV personality told the media: “I want to thank you all for your prayers for our family.
“Caleb and Ladd are in the hospital, but we think they will both be okay. As a family we are giving thanks today, knowing things could have been much worse. Thank you all for your love and kindness. It means a lot.”
The incident occurred on Wednesday, March 10, 2021 at the family’s ranch in Oklahoma as Caleb and Ladd battled a fire on the property.
First responders said the crash happened when Ladd who was traveling northbound and Caleb who was driving southbound had no visibility due to high winds.
Law enforcement said the hard impact ejected Ree’s nephew 70 feet from the truck and he was rushed to hospital in critical condition.
Ree’s husband Ladd did not have any reported injuries and “refused” medical attention on the scene.
Oklahoma Highway Patrol said the crash was due to high winds across grass and gravel.
Official reports have indicated Caleb was not wearing a seatbelt and there was no seatbelt equipped in Ladd’s firetruck.
