Senator Harry Reid's wife Landra and their daughter were severely injured in a car accident Friday as they were hit by a tractor-trailer truck, a Reid spokesman said, according to the Associated Press.
Mrs. Reid, 69 broke her nose, neck and back in the accident and had been listed in serious condition at Inova Faifax Hospital in Falls Church, Va. Their daughter Lana, 49 has a neck injury and facial lacerations, the spokesman said.
Neither of the women injuries appeared to be life-threatening, according to the spokesman.
Mrs. Reid and her daughter were traveling in their minivan when it was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer. The impact forced the vehicle to hit the car in front of them, according to Virginia State Police. Two other drivers were also taken to the hospital.
Democratic Senator Reid met his wife at Basic High School in Henderson, Nevada, during the mid-1950s. They have been married since 1959 and had their first child, Lana, two years later.
