Train carrying GOP lawmakers hits garbage truck on track

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

Minor injuries were reported by those on board. The White House confirmed in a statement that there was one "fatality" and one serious injury; lawmakers said this involved those in the truck, which may have been stuck on the tracks when it was hit.

I'm not going to go into conspiracy-theory speculation about whether this was an accident or a deliberate attack on political figures. We'll let the investigation look into that. Right now we have basically no details about the people responsible (whether by accident, negligence, or malice) except that one of them is probably dead. I'll just say that this is concerning.
