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.

Congressmen Doug Lamborn and Ken Buck were not on the train, which was traveling to a Republican retreat.
