According to several media reports, the Carson campaign has been suspended for the day and Ben Carson made last minute travel arrangements after a car of Carson Campaign volunteers was involved in a severe accident.
Four members of the campaign, 1 employee and 3 volunteers were badly injured when their van hit an icy patch.
One of the four is said to be in “grave” condition and all four were hospitalized.
Upon learning of the news, Carson immediately suspended his campaign and made travel arrangements to be with the injured individuals.
