Senator Reid’s wife, Landra, and daughter, Lana, were involved in an accident earlier today. They are being treated at a Washington-area hospital. While driving on a Washington, DC, highway, their vehicle was rear-ended by a semi-truck. Mrs. Reid has broken nose, broken back and broken neck. Lana has a neck injury and facial lacerations. Both Mrs. Reid and Lana are conscious, can feel their extremities, and according to doctors their injuries are non-life threatening.Virginia State Police say that the Reid's minivan was rear-ended by a tractor trailer while travelling in the northbound lanes of I-95 in stop-and-go traffic. The impact sent the Reids' vehicle into the car in front of them. Police say that the driver of the truck, a 59 year old Ohio man, was charged with reckless driving.
I have to say that I'm a little surprised that they listed a broken back and broken neck as 'non-life threatening'. Anybody who's read this blog knows I have some obvious partisan differences with Sen. Reid, but I do wish a speedy and painless recovery for Lana and Landra Reid.
