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.
"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.''

A speedy recovery to the two ladies.
Praise God, what a close call. Lord, may You be glorified for Your mercy!
Glad they are expected to recover. God bless!
Best wishes for a full recovery.
Speedy recover is in order, but is there any other news of importance . . . I just can’t stomach having any sympathy for Harry Reid under any circumstance.
Well rear ended just doesn’t leave much wiggle room. Way to often truckers think they are driving cars.
“Senator Reid should use the time to ponder quality of medical care. “
I’m sure they’ll have the best of care since congressmen don’t have to be bothered with that bag of crap that Nobama is trying to force on us.
I hope they get well soon. Bad accident with a semi - I wonder if a friend of Rahm or Pelosi was driving.
My family can personally vouch for the expert care the Virginia Spine Institute gives. We opted for them, even by having to go out of network. Worth every dime.
Wow, sounds like it could have ended very badly. Best wishes to the Reid ladies for a full and speedy recovery.
I really mean that. Not just as a way of showing we are not like the sick bastards on the left who wish death and disease on their political opponents and their families.
If our differences were only economics it would be easier. But this guy, on numerous occasions, has undermined our troops in the field. This makes it very difficult for me as well to be concerned for him. His wife, and particularly the kids, obviously yes.
Exactly. It’s called human decency.
“A speedy recovery to the two ladies.”
Agree. They’ve suffered enough hell being married to that infinite dolt - who could suck the personality out of a rock.
His wife suffered abroken back and neck. I wish them both well.
Third crash in the last two hours? That’s bad luck, I tell ya! Prayers going up for all the suffering celeblutards and their families!
Oops, progressive moment. Only one is married to him, the other one had no choice but to put up with him.
In any case, my best wishes to both for a full recovery.
Best wishes for a swift and full recovery.
Thank you, I knew you cared!
Thank God they’re OK. Anyone who’s had a loved one nearly die knows what a gut punch this kind of situation is.
“Not just as a way of showing we are not like the sick bastards on the left who wish death and disease on their political opponents and their families.”
In that spirit, I’m going to wish a long, healthy and happy life to Harry Reid and the rest of the Fascist scum who are trying to destroy our country and take over our lives.
Ah, I feel SO much better now...
The truck rear ended them. Unless they cut him off at the last minute, it is the trucker’s fault.
You are supposed to maintain a clear distance from the vehicle in front.
Prayers up for the injured. A steaming pile for Harry.
‘Course when you’re rear-ended you can fake all kinds of injuries. Happened to me when I rear-ended some tin can with no damage to my rig, and minor damage to the sucker who braked to make an illegal left turn immediately after a left turn (watch those, dude!) My insurance company decided it wasn’t worth the trouble pursuing the fake new age (chiro “dr”) claim of the young female “victim”.
OK you are indeed also correct. Point taken.
Well, I had already prayed but I just thought it was probably mild injuries!
Sounds to me like a teamster trucker was putting a little Chicago style pressure on Reid.
I wouldn’t put anything past the zero.
I hate to be cold.....but from reported injuries, it sounds like they weren’t buckled up.
Interesting. Will any media outlet publicize it? Waiting...
Yes. A speedy recovery to the Reids.
What were they driving or we they being chauferred? a semi and a car usually means the car loses.
From the article -
"All involved were wearing seat belts, police said".
I saw that. But, airbags should have preveted facial lacerations. And seat belts should have prevented other injuries.When you get rear ended, your head snaps back, it doesn’t go forward. The airbags would have prevented facial lacerations on the daughter.Just my opinion.
I agree, but my guess at 69 with a broke back and broke neck she may not be vertical again.
Amen to that!!!!! I pray there is no permanent injuries, God give the doctors and nurses that treat them, wisdom and guidance.
That’s a nasty highway there. I use to live in the area, hate I-495, terrible road.
As upset as I am at Reid, I can’t extend anything but sympathy to his wife and daughter.
Recovery for his wife might be really hard, considering her age. I hope they both do well, and have a good recovery. Let us all pray that Reid learns something about health care in this country, and realizes the folly of his ways.
There probably lucky to be alive. I’ve had those big rigs run right up on me, you think there going to run right over you.
Prayers to the wife and daughter. Also to Reid himself. I would not wish this on my worst enemy.
That is one heck of a nasty injury. I pray for complete and total recovery.
It’s terrible. Prayers for the two ladies.
” Mr. Reid (D., Nev.) went to the hospital after being notified of the accident and returned to Capitol Hill for a meeting with White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on efforts to pass health care legislation... “
His wife has a fractured neck and back and
he leaves her to pow wow with Rahm and Nancy ??
