Train carrying lawmakers collides with truck, Congressman Arrington not on board

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Republican lawmakers and aides say a train carrying them to a policy retreat in West Virginia has struck a truck.
  
Oklahoma GOP Rep. Tom Cole says a person on the truck may have been injured. Emergency workers were on the scene.
  
Cole says he's not aware of any injuries on the train. A GOP aide speaking on condition of anonymity because the aide was not authorized to speak publicly says no lawmakers were injured.

Congressman Jodey Arrington was not on board the train, he reportedly elected to drive.
  
Cole says he believes the accident occurred near Charlottesville, Virginia.
