“We are on our way to our annual GOP retreat, the train carrying members and spouses hit something. Laina and I are ok, I am helping those that are injured, I will have Laina keep you updated as I know more,” Rep. Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) tweeted.

Marshall, a medical doctor, was helping people injured when the train hit a garbage truck.

Several other lawmakers — including Reps. Chris Curbelo, Don Bacon and Bradley Byrne — said the train was in West Virginia at the time of the incident.
