From the report:

An Amtrak train transporting members of Congress and staff to a Republican retreat in West Virginia struck a truck near Charlottesville, Virginia Wednesday morning, according to multiple sources. No serious injuries were reported on the train. The status of the driver of the truck could not be determined, but the person was not believed to be injured either.

Wow. That was a close call. Thank God nobody was injured in the crash.

Republicans are gathering this week at the Greenbrier Resort in West Virginia for a congressional retreat. This meeting comes on the heels of President Trump’s well-received State of the Union speech, which was praised by Americans across the country. Republicans attending are expected to outline their legislative agenda for the year, and hash out ways to ensure President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” agenda is passed.

President Trump is even scheduled to make an appearance at the gathering this Thursday. From a local news report:

According to The White House, Air Force One is expected to arrive around 11:45 a.m. Thursday at Greenbrier Valley Airport in Lewisburg.

Earlier on Monday, Rep. Evan Jenkins confirmed the president will be appearing at the Republican Congressional Retreat at The Greenbrier Resort.

How exciting! Thank goodness nobody was harmed on the train that was just struck.
