Reid’s Wife Successfully Undergoes Surgery

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-Nev.) wife, Landra, underwent successful surgery Friday to repair a broken neck suffered during a car accident Thursday in suburban Virginia.

Dr. Elizabeth Franco, trauma intensivist at Inova Fairfax Hospital, said Reid was conscious and in good spirits, and that she was expected to begin rehabilitation Friday afternoon. Reid could be released from the hospital within the next several days.

Landra Reid; the couple’s daughter, Lana Reid Barringer; and two other people were injured Thursday afternoon when their car was struck from behind by a tractor-trailer, causing a pileup on Interstate 95 in Virginia. Barringer was released from the hospital late Thursday evening.

“The tremendous concern and support for Landra and Lana from people across Nevada and across the nation have deeply touched our entire family,” Reid said in a statement Friday. “We greatly appreciate your thoughts during this difficult time. Landra and I have been married for 50 years. She is the love of my life, and I look forward to her making a full recovery as quickly as possible.”
