HASKELL COUNTY, Okla. — Country music star Carrie Underwood has donated $10,000 to an officer who was critically injured in a rollover crash in Oklahoma.

Tulsa World reports that on Feb. 11, Checotah Assistant Police Chief Justin Durrett was injured when the truck he was driving ran off a road. The officer suffered multiple neck fractures in the wreck.

A GoFundMe page was set up to help raise money for the officer. According to the page, Durrett, a 13-year veteran of the Checotah PD, has no feeling from the chest down.

Underwood, who grew up in Moskogee, Oklahoma, is a childhood friend of Durrett and grew up in church together, according to KOMO News. The singer donated the money to the GoFundMe page, which has raised more than $15,000 as of Wednesday with a goal of $20,000.

Durrett remains in the ICU, but is progressing everyday, according to Inside Edition.
