On December 13, 2020 Benjamin was driving east in I-80 after being furloughed from his job in LA. While traveling toward his hometown of Omaha, Nebraska, a car going the opposite direction on I-80 crossed the median and hit Ben's car head on, tearing the roof off his car and crushing nearly all of it. Miraculously, Ben was not killed. He was taken to the nearest hospital in Kearney, Nebraska and from there life flighted to the Bergan Mercy Trauma Center in Omaha. His injuries are many. The most severe include an arm completely broken above the wrist and and a seriously damaged right leg. Too many stitches to count. Ben has a long healing journey ahead. Three surgeries in the first three weeks. When not in the hospital he will be recovering at the home of his mother, Susan Koenig. Cards can be sent to him at 1266 S 13th St. , Omaha, NE 68108. Because the level of care Ben needs right now is high, please share any updates you read here with others. He has too many who love him to be able to keep everyone updated personally. Benjamin is overflowing with gratitude to be alive, determined to heal, and appreciative of your loving support.
