Reid's Wife Breaks Neck, Back

As though Harry Reid doesn't have enough on his mind: The Senate Majority Leader's wife and daughter were both seriously injured Thursday afternoon in a highway accident outside Washington, D.C., when their car was rear-ended by a semi-truck. Reid's wife Landra, to whom he has been married for 50 years, suffered a broken neck, back, and nose, while his daughter Lana sustained injuries to her neck and face; both are conscious and can feel their extremities, an indication that they aren't paralyzed. Upon receiving word of the accident around 4:15 p.m., Reid left a closed-door health-care meeting for the hospital, returning to the Capitol later to continue.
