Troopers say Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been taken to the hospital in an ambulance after what appears to be a rear-end crash on an interstate through Las Vegas.

Nevada Highway Patrol Office spokesman Jeremie Elliott says he doesnít know Reidís condition after the crash, which happened about 1:10 p.m. Friday on Interstate 15.

The NYT is reporting that he walked into the hospital, and that any injuries were likely minor.

I have a Facebook friend who actually saw the accident, and asked if Reid survived when she heard it was his car. It must have looked worse than it was.

(Or they're flying his clone in!)

Sounds like he'll recover just fine.

So, I now feel free to wish out loud for a nice, slow recovery that keeps him off the Senate floor for some time.

He probably got a new idea for a law from today's accident and will go back to "work" as soon as possible.

Rear ending a Senate Majority leader is a capital offence punishable by a life sentence and $250,000 fine.

I guess Barney Frank and Lindsey Graham will never aspire to lead the Senate, then...

I don't like the man's politics at all, but I'm glad he's okay.

Vegas traffic on a Friday afternoon? Lemme tell ya, IT IS SCARY.

Everyone tailgates, the traffic is moving at 65-75 mph (or faster, sometimes) and there are TONS of visual distractions in the form of flashing billboards, flashing lights, flashy buildings, and occasionally, flashing people, ha!! It really is nuts, and I'm surprised they don't have more crashes there than they do.

Jeez!!

Ol' Reid travels in style! According to the Las Vegas Review Journal, he had a six vehicle caravan going:


Nevada Highway Patrol said his caravan was involved in a six-car accident about 1:10 p.m. on northbound Interstate 15 at Sahara Avenue. Four of the cars were with Reid's caravan.

Exactly how many vehicles does one man need to get from one point to another?

Another interesting thing - I read that article three times, and I've seen nothing about who rear ended whom. Someone double check me to see if I missed it, but it seems like that's the sort of detail that would usually be included in a news article about a multiple car crash.

Edit: Okay, the number of cars in his caravan is unspecified, other than four of them being in the crash.

There's a reason for that. The VIP is never, ever, ever in the last car in his motorcade.

His professional driver rear ended someone, and another of his professional drivers rear ended him. It's the only possible explanation.

Based on his support of NDAA, PATRIOT and drones, it appears Reid faces a life-threatening recovery.

sloooooooow being the operative word!

As a former EMT - rib fractures are usually the result of impacting the steering wheel. Still, that doesn't make sense in a caravan. That these createns think they need protection from us "mundanes" SCREAMS that they are not working in our best interests!

Reid does not drive, has not in years........ he hurt his ribs while he was performing oral sex(blow job) on his driver as his ribs hit the shifter. The caravan was also traveling over the speed limit by 20mph......this is the norm for these disgusting vile beings.

Considering he loves sending young people to their death, I wish for more than this.
