Report: [Harry] Reid taken to hospital after car crash
thehill.com ^ | 10/26/12 | Daniel Strauss

Posted on 10/26/2012 2:24:55 PM PDT by Justaham

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was taken to a hospital on Friday afternoon after a multiple-car crash in Nevada.

The extent of his injuries is unknown although Nevada Highway Patrol public information officer Loy Hixson said Reid's injuries did not appear to be life threatening, according to CNN.

The crash occurred on Interstate 15, according to Las Vegas's KTNV, which runs near the Las Vegas strip.

It happened around 1 p.m. local time and involved multiple cars, including two Metro vehicles, two Capital Police vehicles and two civilian vehicles, according to local Fox affiliate KVVU-TV.

Officers on the scene described it as a chain-reaction crash, according to the Associated Press.

As a member of the Congressional leadership, Reid gets protection from Capitol Police, some of whose vehicles were involved in the crash.

Reid, 72, was taken to University Medical Center in Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Maybe he stopped too quick and Patty Murray’s head got stuck up his butt again.

Reid had more security assigned to him in Vegas than our ambassador in Libya.

Actually, CNN reported that Reid’s injuries did not “APPEAR” to be life threatening, so there is still hope.

Reid and his motorcade were probably speeding and driving unsafely and caused the accident. This happened to N.J. Governor Corzine when his car and escorts were speeding and caused an accident. Politicians think they own the road and do not have to follow the same traffic laws as we do.

ummm, that could be interpreted many ways... I accept the notion that it could mean that he is rendered unfit for office due to health conditions... King David prayed for for the destruction of his enemies, may I assume you follow King Davids prayer model?

Not life threatening.

If the accident would have happened in 2014 after ObamaCare had taken effect, and if the moron didn't have CongressCritterCare, then Dirty Harry would be wearing a toe tag right about now.

Some0ne needs a weekend press blowjob story.
And some0ne doesn’t want to take the fall for anyone or anything.

I guess some0ne is going to go for a sympathy moment about how much he CARES.

Prayers forward for Harry Reid. Whether we agree with you on politics or not, may you have a speedy recovery and may God be with you and your family.

“Not life threatening.”

Shame (that its not life threatening). If it wasn’t a serious crash, we can correctly assume there wasn’t a Kennedy behind the wheel.

if Reid ever wants to get into the best medical care possible he’ll need a private sector insurance policy ~
