Troopers say the two fire trucks collided head-on due to poor visibility and high winds in the area.

The driver in one of the trucks, Caleb Drummond, was ejected from the vehicle and thrown nearly 70 feet. He was rushed to St. John Medical Center for treatment of serious, potentially life-threatening injuries.

The other driver, Ladd Drummond, sustained minor injuries and refused medical attention.
