1 dead, others injured after train carrying GOP lawmakers crashes

At least one person is dead and another seriously injured after a truck was struck by a train carrying Republican members of Congress to a retreat in West Virginia.

While several lawmakers reported minor injuries and many were jolted from their seats, Fox News reports serious injuries involved those in passenger truck.

California Rep. Jeff Denham described the crash as “a very high-speed collision” that came with no warning.

“There was no braking that was felt,” he said. “We hit an immediate impact and went from 70 to zero very quickly.”
