An Amtrak train transporting Republican members of Congress to a retreat crashed into a truck in rural West Virginia Wednesday.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake were among the congressmen aboard the train when it hit.

A congressional source tells CNN “staff and members on the train are OK,” with another source saying, “No serious injuries on the train,” only a few “bumps and bruises.”

The train departed from Union Station in Washington, DC, and was en route to Greenbrier, West Virginia, when it collided with a trash truck, killing the driver.

“There was (what) looks like a tractor trailer carrying trash that was hit by the train,” New York Rep. John Faso described.

“I think everyone on the train is OK. I don’t know that for sure, it’s a long train. But most of the concern is for the people outside,” said Faso.

Other members of Congress confirmed they were OK via social media.
