Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) “wife and daughter were taken to a Washington area hospital for treatment Thursday after a car accident, his office said,” the Washington Post reports.

“Today Senator Reid’s wife, Landra, and daughter, Lana, were involved in an accident in which their vehicle was rear-ended. They are both being treated at a Washington-area hospital,” said Reid spokesman Jon Summers in a statement.

A Reid spokesman said Landra, Reid’s wife, broke her neck, among other injuries, but said her life was not in danger.

Reid is with them at the hospital, aides said.

Update: Jon Summers, spokesman “for Nevada Senator Harry Reid, released the following statement regarding an accident this afternoon in which Senator Reid’s wife and daughter were injured,” according to a press release.

“Senator Reid’s wife, Landra, and daughter, Lana, were involved in an accident earlier today.  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.  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.”
