Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s Wife Seriously Injured in Big Rig Crash

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s Wife Seriously Injured in Big Rig Crash

One good thing to come out of Senator Harry Reid’s wife being seriously injured in her crash with a tractor-trailer would be more public awareness of the dangers of driving alongside semis on the highway. However, with the power of the trucking industry these days, we’re not hopeful that this is going to occur.

Senator Reid’s Wife was Rear-ended on the Interstate by an 18-Wheeler

There’s apparently no controversy about what happened here: a tractor-trailer truck hauling rolls of plastic was rolling down I-95 in Viriginia when it rear-ended a minivan.

Inside that minivan were the wife and daughter of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.  Landra Reid, 69, suffered a broken neck in the crash, as well as a broken back and a broken nose.

Think about this: most of us have been driving along the freeway only to look in our rearview mirror and see one of those semis rushing down on us. It’s very scary.

However, thankfully, usually we don’t get rear-ended like the Senator’s wife did.

The latest, as of this morning ….

Mrs. Reid has been released from the hospital after having surgery and is not expect to suffer from any paralysis (which is not the usual result of these accidents from our experience, she’s been very lucky here).

Politico is reporting that the truck driver has been charged with reckless driving by the Virginia State Police.
