The nature of any injuries is unclear. Fox News is told no GOP members or family members were injured, though Rep. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., tweeted that he was helping the injured.

The accident took place in Crozet, Va., near Charlottesville, Va. Members were on a special chartered Amtrak train to the Greenbrier resort, where Vice President Pence was set to speak Wednesday night, with a planned appearance from President Trump on Thursday.
