WASHINGTON (AP) – Republican lawmakers and aides say a train carrying them to a policy retreat in West Virginia has struck a truck.
Oklahoma GOP Rep. Tom Cole says a person on the truck may have been injured. Emergency workers were on the scene.
Cole says he’s not aware of any injuries on the train.

“Our train heading to the GOP Retreat in West Virginia has been involved in an accident,” Sen. James Lankford of Oklahoma wrote on Twitter. “I am safe but first responders are treating minor injuries on the train and treating the truck drivers.”

A GOP aide speaking on condition of anonymity because the aide was not authorized to speak publicly says no lawmakers were injured.
Cole says he believes the accident occurred near Charlottesville, Virginia.
