Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's wife and daughter were in a serious car accident Thursday afternoon on Interstate 95 in Fairfax County, and police said they are being treated at an area hospital for non-life threatening injuries.
Police said the Reids' van was rear-ended and crushed by a fully loaded tractor-trailer while driving in heavy traffic.
Virginia State Police spokeswoman Corinne Geller said Landra G. Reid, 69, and Lana Reid-Barringer, 48, of McLean, were driving northbound on I-95 at about 1:10 p.m. in a 2005 Honda Odyssey van when a tractor-trailer loaded with rolls of plastic pushed the van into another car.
The van was crushed on both ends. The 44 blog has additional details.
