WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) - Update Thursday, March 11, 2021: Ree Drummond, known as “The Pioneer Woman” on Thursday provided an update on her Facebook page following Wednesday’s head-on crash involving her nephew and her husband. Drummond said both are in the hospital, but the family believes both of them will be okay.

“As a family, we are giving thanks today knowing things could have been much worse,” Drummond wrote. “Thank you all for you love and kindness. It means a lot.”

Wednesday, March 10, 2021: The nephew and husband of “The Pioneer Woman,” Ree Drummond were involved in a serious, head-on crash Wednesday, March 10, while battling a wild fire on the Drummond Ranch in Osage County, Okla., Tulsa’s KOTV News on 6 reported.

Drummond’s nephew, 21-year-old Caleb Drummond, was hospitalized in critical condition after the crash involving two trucks. Her husband, 52-year-old Ladd Drummond, was not seriously injured, News on 6 relayed from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. The OHP said conditions were a factor in the crash with high winds across grass and gravel. Caleb Drummond was ejected from the truck, the highway patrol reported.

“On a high windy day like we’re seeing and then on gravel roads, it is not uncommon for visibility to be low,” explained Trooper Eric Foster to News on 6. “And if they’re both traveling to the same area, I mean that is a tragic accident.”
