A chartered train carrying Republican lawmakers to a retreat collided with a trash truck Wednesday morning, a congressman said.
The train was carrying House and Senate Republicans to the retreat in West Virginia when it hit the truck, Rep. Carlos Curbelo, of Florida, said on MSNBC.
“Thankfully it does appear that most people are OK here, some minor injuries,” he said, adding he hoped the driver and any passengers in the truck were also unharmed.
“We were on our way to West Virginia and it was a sudden impact, a loud noise and everyone was jolted,” he said.
A statement from Amtrak said the crash happened at 11:20 a.m. in Crozet, Va.
