TULSA, Okla. — Ree Drummond, the "Pioneer Woman" of TV and internet fame, offered more details about the injuries her husband and nephew suffered in a crash on the ranch last week.

In a post on her blog, Drummond wrote that her nephew Caleb broke some ribs, had a concussion, and some other injuries. She said her husband Ladd, who the Oklahoma Highway Patrol said declined treatment at the scene, later drove himself to the hospital in Pawhuska.

There he was transferred to Tulsa for surgery after learning that he broke his neck in two places.

"He will have to wear a neck brace for several weeks to let the other fracture heal, and the girls and I will bling out the brace for Alex’s wedding, but we are just grateful he will be here for Alex’s wedding," Drummond said.

She also thanked the "amazing medical team at St. John's in Tulsa."

Both Caleb and Ladd are now home from the hospital.
