Bretton Cameron, Graysen Cameron’s brother, tweeted he heard his brother is doing OK.

“I’m absolutely devastated for him. His teammates. Staff. Organization. Family members and community. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved,” Bretton Cameron’s tweet said..

The devastating crash comes just weeks after Olds’ Ryan McBeath was killed in a collision. Graysen Cameron was one of many Central Albertans to write about McBeath online.
