A volunteer for Carson's presidential campaign died Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2016, after being hospitalized with injuries suffered in a car accident in western Iowa that hurt three other campaign workers.

    Ben Carson announced he will resume campaigning a day after suspending activities after a fatal car crash that took the life of a campaign volunteer, NBC News reported.

    Joplin, 25, died after a van he was in carrying Carson staff and volunteers flipped on an icy road near Atlantic, Iowa. Three others were hospitalized and released.

    In a statement, the Carson said "Our mission going forward is to honor Braden as he embodied the spirit we carry forward, restoring the transformative power of We the People, unifying our nation with the inspirational vision of those who passionately love our country.”
