Train carrying lawmakers to GOP retreat involved in accident

January 31, 2018

A train carrying members of Congress to a Republican retreat in West Virginia slammed into a dump truck on Wednesday, throwing lawmakers from their seats and leaving at least one person dead, officials said.

The truck may have been stuck on the tracks. There are mixed reports over whether the train actually derailed.

Lawmakers on the train flooded social media with images of the wrecked truck, as well as damage to the crumpled front of the train.

The nature or extent of injuries was also unclear. Amtrak said there were no reported injuries to passengers or crew members, though lawmakers reported minor injuries on board.

    Good incentive for the lawmakers to get cracking with needed infrastructure repairs. First hand knowledge works wonders.

    It will be interesting to know what the name of the driver is. Was this an intentional derailing because of who was on board?
