Reid’s Wife and Daughter Injured in Car Wreck

Senator Harry Reid’s wife and daughter were involved in a serious car wreck in Washington D.C. Reports indicate that his wife is in serious condition, having suffered a broken back.

The New York Times reports:

WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s wife and daughter were hospitalized Thursday — the wife with a broken back and neck — after their minivan was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer truck on an interstate highway in suburban Virginia, authorities said.

Reid’s wife, Landra, 69, and the couple’s daughter, Lana Barringer, 49, were taken by ambulance to Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Va. Neither woman’s injuries appeared to be life-threatening, and the daughter was expected to be released from the hospital Thursday night, Reid aides said. Mrs. Reid was listed in serious condition, an aide said, but she was not expected to require surgery.

”Mrs. Reid has a broken nose, broken back and broken neck,” Reid spokesman Jim Manley said in a statement. ”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.”

USA Today also has the story.

I join Robert Stace McCain, the Lonely Conservative, and the Left Coast Rebel in wishing Senator Reid’s family well and a speedy and full recovery.
