An Amtrak train taking U.S. lawmakers and their staff to a Republican retreat in West Virginia struck a garbage truck near Charlottesville, Virginia, on Wednesday morning, killing the driver of truck, according to multiple sources. No serious injuries were reported on the train, although some passengers were hurt.

The White House confirmed that there had been one fatality and one serious injury, with multiple GOP sources telling a local TV station that the truck driver had died and that other occupants of the truck were hurt.
