Campaign Workers for Ben Carson Are Hurt in Car Accident
A car accident on Tuesday injured three volunteers and a campaign aide for Ben Carson, leading the presidential candidate to suspend campaigning for the day.
The following is the statement from the campaign:
“Earlier today in Iowa, a van transporting three campaign volunteers and a Carson campaign employee hit a patch of ice and flipped on its side where it was struck by another vehicle. Three of the passengers, including the campaign staffer driving, are currently being checked out at Cass County Memorial Hospital in Atlantic, Iowa. One volunteer is being transported to the trauma center at the University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska.
Dr. Carson has spoken with the family of the volunteer being transported to Omaha, as well as the attending physician. Dr. Carson has canceled all remaining campaign events today and will be traveling to Omaha this afternoon to be with the family during this difficult time.
Dr. Carson is asking people to join him in prayer for all the individuals and families involved.”
I heard about this. We will see as information comes in the extent of the injuries.
