Some Indiana Republican members of Congress were part of a train accident yesterday in Virginia. The accident happened when the train hit a dump truck near Charlottesville, Virginia. The Republican members of Congress were headed to a West Virginia party retreat when the accident happened.
One person in the dump truck was killed in the crash. None of the Congressmen were injured; that number included Eighth District Indiana Congressman Larry Bucshon.
Bucshon– who is also a doctor– was one of a group of physicians on the train who used their medical skills at the scene. Indiana Senator Todd Young was also on the train; he was glad to have Bucshon and other Congressional doctors at the accident scene…
On his official Facebook page, Bucshon says both he and his wife Kathryn– who is also a doctor– helped with the victims. both Bucshon’s also send their thoughts and prayers out to the victims.
