Amtrak Train Carrying GOP Lawmakers Hits Garbage Truck

A chartered train carrying dozens of GOP lawmakers to a Republican retreat in West Virginia struck a garbage truck south of Charlottesville, Virginia on Wednesday, but no lawmakers were apparently injured.


Congressman Don Bacon was on the train but tweeted he’s okay. Several other Nebraka and Iowa lawmakers were also reportedly on the train, including Congressman Jeff Fortenberry and Iowa Senator Joni Ernst.


The accident occurred south of Charlottesville, Virginia. The train was en route to the Greenbrier resort in White Sulfur Springs for a three-day issues retreat featuring appearances by President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.
