Last update, but perhaps most important one
I’m going to put something on FB later, but it’ll be something like, “please be nice & patient with Time Disposal folks. They just suffered a tragedy, & we should help them anyway we can. We can start by wig nice & understanding of our trash isn’t picked up”— realcrozetva (@realcrozetva) January 31, 2018
I’ll update this as the day goes on.
Amtrak train carrying GOP politicians to the Greenbrier hit a trash truck at the Lanetown intersection … think – Railroad Avenue towards Mint Springs, but bear left to go behind Orchard Acres, cutting over to Jarmans Gap.
Emergency crews are on the scene in Crozet where an Amtrak train struck a garbage truck.
A nurse on the scene tells NBC29 that there is one fatality and at least one person is in critical condition.
Update from the county. I saw two people taken from the train and put into ambulances as the train was heading back east. pic.twitter.com/iqgs8hbIjZ— Allison Wrabel (@craftypanda) January 31, 2018
At 11:17 a.m. Wednesday, we got a call of a fast train into a truck at Lanetown/Marymart Farm Roads. There are three confirmed serious injuries related to the truck, not the train. We are working on getting additional information and will provide it as soon as possible. https://t.co/T9gnFs9yNb— AlbemarleCoVAPolice (@ACPD_VA) January 31, 2018
