This is really quite serious. Altough the injuries are not "life-threatening" it is reported that Mrs. Reid has a broken nose, back, and neck. She is 69 years old. Those are very serious injuries for a person of that age.
Please pray for both Mrs. Reid and her daughter Lana.
Updated at 6:23 p.m. ET. Reid's office just put out a statement. It says the Reids' car was "rear-ended by a semi-truck" on a Washington, D.C., highway. It goes on to say:
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.
