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.
