Ben Carson volunteer dies after crash

and January 19, 2016

OMAHA — A young Ben Carson campaign volunteer died in a hospital here after a vehicle crash in western Iowa Tuesday morning.

The accident prompted the Republican presidential candidate to cancel campaign stops Tuesday and Wednesday.

Braden Joplin, 25, was killed when a van driven by a campaign staffer and carrying three volunteers lost control and was struck by another vehicle on icy Interstate Highway 80 Tuesday morning near Atlantic, according to the Iowa State Patrol.

Joplin was a student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock. He had been in Iowa since early January to volunteer with the Carson campaign.

"I had the privilege of knowing Braden Joplin personally and am filled with a deep and profound sadness at his passing," Carson said in an emailed statement Tuesday night. Carson called campaign volunteers "unsung heroes" and asked people to pray for Joplin’s family and friends. (Des Moines Register)
