Carrie Underwood donates to Checotah officer who remains in ICU after accident
CHECOTAH, Okla. (KTUL) —
Checotah Assistant Police Chief Justin Durrett is in the ICU following massive injuries he sustained in a rollover crash last Sunday morning.
Haskell County Deputy Misty Johnson came upon the accident and called for help. She sat with Durrett until medical responders arrived to help.
Durrett underwent surgery and has a broken neck, bruised spine, multiple gashes on his head and numbness from his chest down.
Family says Checotah native and country music superstar Carrie Underwood, also known as Carrie Fisher after marrying professional hockey player Mike Fisher, is a childhood friend of Durrett and the two grew up in church together.
On Saturday, Underwood donated $10,000 to Durrett's GoFundMe page to help him and his family with the medical bills.
