Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., was taken to a hospital after his vehicle was involved in a six-car accident in Nevada.
“BREAKING: Harry Reid transported to UMC. No word on injury. His caravan involved in accident on I-15 nbound. 6-car accident,” Mike Blasky of the Las Vegas Review Journal tweeted. “The accident involved two Metro vehicles, two Capital Police vehicles and two civilian vehicles,” according to the local Fox affiliate.
Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston of Ralston Reports has this update: “Source close to Reid: ‘He’s fine. Just a little sore.’”
Reid is 72. In 2010, his wife and daughter were injured after they were rear-ended in a serious car accident in the Washington D.C. area.
