Ernst, Young uninjured in West Virginia train crash

Two Southwest Iowa lawmakers escaped injury following a train crash Wednesday. 

Sen. Joni Ernst and Congressman David Young were part of a group of GOP legislators on their way to a retreat in West Virginia when their train struck a garbage truck. One of the occupants of the garbage truck was fatally injured in the crash, and other injuries were reported. 

Ernst sent out a tweet to her followers after the crash:

"I was on the train with my colleagues, but I’m okay. Please keep the drivers of the truck and train engineers in your prayers."
