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. A GOP aide speaking on condition of anonymity because the aide was not authorized to speak publicly says no lawmakers were injured.
