Congressman Buddy Carter and his wife Amy were on the AMTRAK train carrying Republican members of Congress to a retreat in West Virginia that was involved in an accident Wednesday morning.
“Amy and I were on the train but we are okay. We are praying for others involved,” Carter tweeted shortly after noon.
According to media reports, the train collided with a garbage truck at a crossing in Virginia, killing one person in the truck. The train did not leave the tracks, and no serious injuries were reported among passengers, which included Republican members of Congress, some family members and aides.
