WASHINGTON (AP) ― Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's wife and daughter are recovering in a Washington-area hospital after a car accident.
A spokesman for Reid says the majority leader's wife, Landra, and their daughter, Lana, were injured Thursday when their vehicle was rear-ended. Reid left the Senate for the hospital. The spokesman says details are unclear.

That’s awful. I hope Harry resigns his seat so he can be with his family.
I am sure that Reid’s wife and daughter will get the most paramount health care. Forget Obamacare! Politicians’ healthcare is like winning the one-hundred million dollar lottery 1 million times over.
Prayers that they’ll be OK.
Oh, and to balance things out - screw you, Harry.
Reid has a son named “Key” and they made fun of Sarah Palin’s children’s name.
One report says they were rear ended by a truck on I-95. Back and neck injuries, but they can feel their extremities.
Maybe this will be a heart changing moment for Harry.
Perhaps out rear-ending each other?
It’s a shame we live in a country where the Reids could be DENIED CARE!!! How terrifying that they were injured and now have to rely upon a medical system which is 37TH IN THE WORLD!!! THE HORROR!!!
Oh puhleese, This POS is already on his way back to Capitol Hill as just reported on FOX.
Prayers up for America.
I hope they are well.
Related to Reid, and now this? They can’t get a break. Prayers for them.
Prayers for the Reids. May they heal up fully in time to hear their patriarch conceed defeat on the evening of November 2nd, 2010.
I wonder if Harry will show his solidarity with Obamacare by giving them the painkiller instead of the surgery. My best to his family for a quick recovery.
Prayers for their safety and comfort.
On another note, I’ll bet they are glad that the current health care system is in place for them to get immediate treatment. I’ll also bet they didn’t even consider going up to Canada to take advantage of its “unbroken” universal healthcare system.
From watching Patrick Kennedy’s performance the other day, I would have stayed off all the roads inside the beltway for a couple of days. How long does it take for Ambien to wear off?
oh, no...hope they are OK.
It’s insane driving around DC.
I just heard that and thought I must have not heard correctly. His wife and daughter are both injured and that fool is on his way back to the Senate to screw us. I hope he......
Lord forgive me.
Missed that. Well, so much for the heart changing moment.
Prayers for their recovery.
Prayer for the family for a quick recovery. Harry will need you badly come November.
“”Harry Reid’s wife, Landra, suffered a broken neck, back and nose and his daughter, Lana, also sustained serious injuries in a chain-reaction car accident in Fairfax, Va. on Thursday according to Reid’s spokesman.
Both women’s injuries are considered serious but not life-threatening — and both have sensation in their extremities, an indication that they aren’t paralyzed, Reid spokesman Jim Manley said.
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,” Manley wrote in an email.
“Mrs. Reid has a 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. Senator Reid has been to the hospital and appreciates the support he and his family are receiving from Nevadans and his colleagues in the Senate.”
Reid was pulled out of a meeting and was rushed to the hospital to visit them but was expected to return to the Senate this evening, aides said.””
I am sorry they were hurt, but if it got Harry Reid away from the Senate floor, perhaps could it be divine intervention?
I’ll pray for Harry’s family, and for the unemployed men to not beat up their wives, and for the war not to be lost, and for Republicans not to act like slaveholders, and for Barak Obama to act black when he wants to and be articulate when he wants to.
Rear ended by a semi, wife suffered broken neck and back, daughter some scrapes - both non-life threatening injuries - on hearing the news, Harry rushed to the WH to meet with his Master on Healthcare...
I just heard that- good grief- his wife has a broken neck and back and he’s run back to the Senate?
Although- she’s probably worrying about his upcoming violence toward her since he’ll be unemployed soon...so she sent him back to work ;)
“He will not *waste a tragedy*.
Watch that old buzzard use his personal story to sell his nightmare package.”
I’ve had the same thought..... Liberals have no scruples.
trying to give a shi’ite
Not life threatening, but extremely painful I'm sure. Notwithstanding my opinions of Senator Reid, I'm praying for their recovery.
Prayers for the family.
Prayers for no sympathy votes in November!
Those injuries are severe for a woman her age (the wife).
It will be a long recovery.
I wouldn’t wish this kind of trouble on my worst enemy. Rear-ended by a semi on I-95. It’s a very dangerous road.
God be with them all and may the doctors and nurses give them the best of American healthcare (pre-Obamacare style.)
Right now they are probably both heavily sedated and don’t know or care if Harry is there or not.
Too bad he wasn’t in the car.
Reid’s wife and daughter sent to hospital after car accident
Updated 6:15 p.m.
By Josh White and Shailagh Murray
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s wife and daughter were in a serious car accident Thursday afternoon on Interstate 95 in Fairfax County, and police said they are being treated at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Police said the Reids’ van was rear-ended and crushed by a fully loaded tractor-trailer while driving in heavy traffic.
Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said Landra G. Reid, 69, and Lana Reid-Barringer, 48, of McLean, were driving northbound on I-95 at about 1:10 p.m. in a 2005 Honda Odyssey van in stop-and-go traffic when Reid-Barringer began to stop for traffic ahead of her. A tractor-trailer loaded with rolls of plastic behind her did not stop and pushed the van into another car.
That car in turn hit a third car.
Geller said the van was crushed on both ends.
“Ted Kennedy (D-HELL) is unavailable for comment...”
I agree. He went to the hospital and all the people he met who didn’t have insurance, blah, blah, blah.
I wish no harm to Reid, Pelosi , Obama etc. I do not want them to be martyrs. I want to see them leaving Capitol Hill in November curled up in a fetal position crying hysterically.
Yep...he’s gonna to try to bring a new level of depravity to the place...
What did Obama know and when did he order it?
...and drooling. Drooling would be nice.
Broken neck, nose, and back—no doubt there will be some surgery involved.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery
Prayers for a quick recovery for both.
