Osage Nation Attorney General Holli Wells reportedly sustained serious injuries Monday afternoon when she fell down some stairs near her office on the tribal complex.

Local paramedics were dispatched to a Grandview location around 4 p.m. Wells is believed to have remained conscious throughout the ordeal. She was transported by ambulance to a Tulsa hospital for further treatment of her undisclosed injuries, according to reports made in radio transmissions.

Wells, a former environmental lawyer and state court judge, was named to the post by Osage Nation Principal Chief Geoffrey Standing Bear last March and later received confirmation from the ON Congress. She replaced Jeff Jones, who became the first-ever attorney general of the tribe when he was appointed in 2011 by then-Principal Chief John Red Eagle. Wells previously resided in Tahlequah and had served as Cherokee County District Court Special Judge since 2007.
