Several of Colorado's Republican members of Congress were on an Amtrak train that crashed into a dump truck in West Virginia Wednesday morning, and it appears all of them were uninjured.
Sen. Cory Gardner, and Reps. Scott Tipton and Mike Coffman all tweeted assurances that they are OK, and praying for those who were injured.
I am on the train and ok, but know a lot of prayers are needed now for those hurt. https://t.co/jkwRfZTTW9— Cory Gardner (@SenCoryGardner) January 31, 2018
