Ladd and their nephew, Caleb, were involved in a horrific truck crash at the family’s ranch in Oklahoma as the pair battled a fire on the property. 

Ladd was traveling northbound and Caleb was driving southbound when they collided due to high winds and low visibility, first responders said.

The hard impact ejected Ree's nephew 70 feet from the truck and he was rushed to the hospital in critical condition.

Caleb, 22, suffered a few broken ribs and a severe concussion.

Ladd "refused" medical attention on the scene and was able to drive himself to the hospital.

Ree explained in the blog post: "This was partly because he wanted the paramedics to focus on Caleb, partly because he was still a little stunned by the accident, and partly because cowboys don't like to admit when they're hurt."

Ladd learned of his injuries at the hospital and went into surgery, where a few rods and "other hardware" were used to stabilize his severe fracture.

Has Ladd Drummond recovered from his injuries?

On a blog post shared on March 26, 2022, a little over a year after Ladd's accident, Ree shared that her husband Ladd is "doing great" and is basically back to his old routines.

The 53-year-old wrote in her blog that it "is pretty remarkable" to see Ladd back in his groove.

"He's lifting weights. He's riding his horse. He's feeding cattle and doing all the work on the ranch he always did," Ree wrote. 

"Sure, his neck is still a little stiff and probably always will be.

"He can no longer whip his head around when I call 'Oh, Honey????? Can you do me a favor????' from the other room. (And this is probably okay with him, haha)," she added.

"So all in all, I'm giving thanks today Ladd is pretty much back to normal…just in time for spring burning to start, by the way. I repeat: Jesus take the wheel."

How many children do Ladd and Ree Drummond have?
