GOP retreat train collides with truck
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/dr-g...f6a995a57b

Reports of injuries vary from mild to a couple of severe ones. It's not really known yet.


Quote:An Amtrak train carrying Republican lawmakers to an annual party conference in West Virginia collided Wednesday with at least one vehicle, according to lawmakers and aides on board. The extent of injuries was not immediately clear.

Quote:“We appear to have hit a garbage truck,” said Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), who was reached by telephone on board the train.
“It looks like it’s been maybe cut in half. We can see garbage strewn around and we can see the back half of the truck. There was a feeling of an impact and you could feel we had hit something. It took us maybe a quarter mile to stop.”

Well that's a little on the nose, isn't it? Tongue

(Also I hope no one was hurt too badly, I feel awful for those that were)

No mention of any humans in the garbage truck. They might be immigrants.

RE: GOP retreat train collides with truck
My question: Why would anyone try to outrun a train? They can't stop on a dime, no vehicle can and when you see it across the tracks it's already too late to stop.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

So. Many. Metaphors.

Sad to say that there has been (at least) one fatality.

Your faith is not evidence, your opinion is not fact, and your bias is not wisdom

Oh no, I didn't realize anyone died. Ugh Sad
My guess is the truck driver?
