OMAHA, Neb. — ABC cameraman Ralph Binder was driving with soundman Dan Johnson from Denver to Omaha to cover the mall shooting on Thursday when Binder was killed.
ABC said they were in a crash on Interstate 80 near Grand Island.
According to police, their vehicle swerved to avoid a car that had lost control in front of them. Binder was killed.
Johnson was treated and released from a hospital.
Binder started at ABC News in 1974. Last month, he was Charlie Gibson’s cameraman during the California wildfires.
ABC desribed him as “a first-class cameraman but much more; he was a wonderful man.”
He was married to Joy Wolf — a freelance producer for ABC News. He was the father of two sons, ages 12 and 9.
