Train was headed to a Republican policy retreat

UPDATE: FOX 44 has learned that Representative Roger Williams, Representative John Carter, Representative Bill Flores and his wife Gina were on the train carrying Republican lawmakers and their aides to a policy retreat in West Virginia when it hit a truck.

Their communication directors say they were not injured.

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.
