    Amtrak carrying members of Congress hits truck in Virginia

    Assessment being made as to injuries. Reports are most appear to be minor. Paul Ryan has been confirmed to be on the train. Security is high, due to it being a train filled with lawmakers headed to a retreat.

    Apparently some GOP lawmakers were injured.
    Dimocrats will be rejoicing.

    Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight, I'm sure this train had a big banner on the side yelling "THIS TRAIN IS CARRYING GOP CONGRESSCRITTERS" and was advertised a month in advance on Craigslist.
