Harry Reid’s Wife Landra & Daughter Lana Seriously Injured in Car Accident in Fairfax, VA


There is no politics in this story regarding Harry Reid and his family … say a prayer for the Reid family this evening.

Our prayers and best wishes go out to Democrat Senate Majority leader Harry Reid and his family following the car accident in Fairfax, VA that left his wife Landra and daughter Lana seriously injured. Reid’s wife Landra and daughter Lana were rear-ended by a semi-truck on a on an interstate highway in suburban Virginia.

According to reports, their injuries are serious but not life threatening. Landra Reid has a broken nose, broken back and broken neck while daughter Lana has a neck injury and facial lacerations.

Harry Reid’s wife, Landra, suffered a broken neck, back and nose and his daughter, Lana, also sustained serious injuries in a chain-reaction car accident in Fairfax, Va. on Thursday  according to Reid’s spokesman.

Both women’s injuries are considered serious but not life-threatening — and both have sensation in their extremities, an indication that they aren’t paralyzed, Reid spokesman Jon Summers said.

Reid’s wife is listed in serious condition and will stay in the hospital, but his daughter will be released. The initial prognosis for Reid’s wife is that no surgery will be required, Summer said.

I would echo The Other McCain’s comments regarding accidents like this put like into perspective and bring out one of our greatest qualities … humanity. We can disagree with one’s politics and want to retire them back to Nevada; however, we should always wish well and pray for those hurt, injured or in harms way … no matter what the politics.

This is the sort of tragedy that can befall any family, and it’s an opportunity to recall the humanity of even those with whom we might differ in other contexts. Let’s keep the comments classy, folks.

UPDATE I: Truck driver in Reid accident twice cited for speeding

The Ohio truck driver charged with reckless driving in an accident that injured Sen. Harry Reid’s wife and daughter has twice been convicted of speeding, and once for a vehicle registration violation, records show.

Alan W. Snader, 59, was convicted of speeding in 1998 and 2001, and of a registration violation in 2007, according to records CNN obtained from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The records do not give details of the infractions.

      Best wishes for a speedy recovery :-) I can’t believe Hairy Reid went to the hospital to check on his wife, only to turn right back around to go to meet with Rahm Emanuel…

      Where was Harry during her surgery? Was he with Rahm or with his wife? Guess she now knows who is more important to Harry.
