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

The train hit a garbage truck, they're asking for doctors on the trains to help. Right now Dr. Marshall is helping people who are injured.— Dr. Roger Marshall (@RogerMarshallMD) January 31, 2018
We're fine, but our train hit a garbage truck. Members with medical training are assisting the drivers of the truck. pic.twitter.com/0I9jOwHTmb— Rep. Greg Walden (@repgregwalden) January 31, 2018
