Breaking story, no serious injuries reported yet, status of the truck driver is unknown. Apparently it happened outside Charlottesville...

Quote:
A chartered train carrying Republican lawmakers to a retreat collided with a trash truck Wednesday morning, a congressman said.

The train was carrying House and Senate Republicans to the retreat in West Virginia when it hit the truck, Rep. Carlos Curbelo, of Florida, said on MSNBC.

“Thankfully it does appear that most people are OK here, some minor injuries,” he said, adding he hoped the driver and any passengers in the truck were also unharmed.

“We were on our way to West Virginia and it was a sudden impact, a loud noise and everyone was jolted,” he said.

A statement from Amtrak said the crash happened at 11:20 a.m. in Crozet, Va.

"Local law enforcement is investigating the incident and crews are inspecting equipment for damage. The train originated in Washington, D.C. Updates will be provided as new information becomes available," the statement said.

Several lawmakers tweeted about the incident and said they were uninjured.

“Our train heading to the GOP Retreat in West Virginia has been involved in an accident,” tweeted Sen. James Lankford, of Oklahoma. “I am safe but first responders are treating minor injuries on the train & treating the truck drivers.”

A post on Rep. Roger Marshall’s Twitter account said the “train hit a garbage truck, they're asking for doctors on the trains to help.”

“Right now Dr. Marshall is helping people who are injured,” the tweet said of the Kansas lawmaker.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said the president is aware of the accident.

The driver is dead, Billy Dee Kristol "conscience of the right" outed himself as an asshole again and I pray the driver's family finds solace. http://acecomments.mu.nu/?post=373622

Kristol is an idiot. The guy is on somebody's payroll. Maybe Jeb Bush is paying him...or Bush 41



The attack on Senator Rand was quietly changed to a Federal prosecution. Evidently, it was more than a landscaping dispute. It never occurred to me to make a joke about a truck colliding with a train full of Congresspeople...considering what happened at softball practice.

The democrat faithful are told every day by their leadership we on the right are Nazis, of course the GOP elected class refuses to call the donks communists.

The Las Vegas shooter was a union donk, I'd bet money on it.

Trains pretty much always have "right of way," right?

I think that it potentially jeopardizes the extremist Left idea that ‘people should go out and punch a Nazi’. As well as the idea that the Left is out there committing acts of political violence.

Therefore it’s best to simply downplay the attack on Sen. Paul.

They have been neighbors for over 20 years. Their kids go to school together and then Trump gets elected and the guy decides to break 4-5 ribs and cause a pneumothorax because of a couple of trees obstructing a lake view??? Dick Butkus in his prime would have been lucky to do that much damage.

After the lunatic at the softball game I am pretty suspicious.

Liberals Tweet With Glee After GOP Train Crash, Death Of 28 Year Old Man


KAREN TOWNSENDPosted at 4:41 pm on February 1, 2018

The post- State of the Union address joy felt by a group of Senate and House Republicans, along with their families, in route to West Virginia for a retreat Wednesday morning soon ended in shock and disbelief. The chartered train crashed with a garbage truck resulting in the death of a 28 year- old sanitation worker. The driver of the truck is in critical condition. Rep. Jason Lewis of Minnesota was taken to the hospital with a possible concussion.

The University of Virginia Health System said Wednesday night that it had received six patients at UVA Medical Center. One was in critical condition, one was in good condition, three were still being evaluated and one was discharged, it said.

Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ) was traveling in a front car with his wife and son. He and others helped take the injured to ambulances. You may remember he also helped during the baseball field shooting that injured Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) so badly. Fortunately, several Republican lawmakers are also doctors and one lawmaker mentioned his wife is a nurse who helped out.

Minutes after the train slammed into the dump truck on Wednesday morning, Kansas GOP Rep. Roger Marshall tweeted that he was OK but was delivering first aid to victims.

“We are on our way to our annual GOP retreat, the train carrying members and spouses hit something. … I am helping those that are injured,” the physician tweeted.

Marshall, along with another doctor-lawmaker, Tennessee Rep. Phil Roe, went on to perform CPR on the driver of the garbage truck, Marshall’s office said.


As usual, when bad things happen within the political universe, the worst of the opposition’s side shows itself on Twitter. Wednesday’s train wreck was no exception. Jonathan Tasini, a “Bernie Sanders surrogate” according to his bio, was particularly odious. He linked the train wreck with Rep. Trey Gowdy’s retirement announcement. The tweet has since been deleted after he received well-deserved blowback.

Tasini, who penned a column for CNN as recently as Jan. 13, decided the two stories were the result of God ridding Washington D.C. of his political opponents.

“Wow, btwn train full of Goopers hitting truck and this, God is working hard today to clean up the stink. Thank her. #TreyGowdy #goptrainwreck,” Tasini wrote in a now-deleted tweet.


Alex Griswold at the Free Beacon captured it, though, along with Tasini’s picture with Bernie.

And this one from Michael Ian Black was captured by a Daily Wire contributor.

{see linked article for this tweet}

These two twits are not smartass teenagers, they are grown men choosing to get a thrill out of a tragic event. What dark souls.

Speaker Paul Ryan was onboard with his wife and both were uninjured. Alternate transportation took the group on to West Virginia. Ryan said that the retreat would go on but “with an adjusted program”.

The crash cast a somber tone on the GOP’s long-planned huddle at the Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. The retreat would carry on “with an adjusted program,” organizers said Wednesday. President Trump is scheduled to address the group Thursday.

The National Transportation Safety Board has opened an investigation.



I saw a James Woods Tweet this morning about the asshat who sent that Tweet out.

CNN initially denied that this Tasini guy was a CNN contributor but Woods replied to their denial with:

You can just ignore all that since....
