According to a report from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, the accident took place around 1:43 p.m. on Wednesday. Ladd and Caleb Drummond were each driving Himmat Fire Trucks on County Road N3660, trying to fight a nearly 1000-acre brush fire on their property in the area.

The 57-year-old was driving northbound, Caleb southbound, and the trucks struck one another "head-on," thanks to "high winds on a gravel road" leading to decreased visibility, according to the report. 

Neither one of the The Food Network star's family members were wearing their seatbelt, the report said, and Caleb "was ejected approximately 70 feet from point of rest."
