A train hauling Republican lawmakers to their annual retreat in West Virginia slammed into a truck hauling garbage that had stopped on the track Wednesday - leaving one dead.
The impact crunched the front of the train's engine, smashed the truck, and left one truck passenger dead and at least five hospitalized - including Rep. Jason Lewis of Minnesota who suffered a concussion.
University of Virginia Health System tweeted just after 1pm that one of the patients was in critical condition while the others were still being evaluated.
Amtrak said three of the injured were passengers and and two were crew.
Sen. Jeff Flake (Arizona) was among the many lawmakers who sprang into action to tend to the injured after the accident, helping carry one man on a stretcher.

A lot of peaople are reading far more into this than we can see from the observable facts. If this was an orchestrated assault on the GOP stopping the train would be the first step. However, as we can see when they disembarked they would be vulnerable to assault. They weren't. So it is highly unlikely that that was the case. Yes they were going to Greenbrier, but it has been deactivated as a continuity of government site for many long years after it became public knowledge in 1992. However, many alternative media don't do the task as an affair of the heart like myself. They do it to make money. The more wild the story, the more tune in or turn on. In that regard they are no different than MSM. The GOP were on an R & R sojourn and hit a truck a guy left on the tracks. At best the driver did it on purpose. The rest is more than likely a fairy tale.
