Harry Reid released from hospital after vehicle crash

[Updated at 7:05 p.m. ET] Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nevada, was discharged late Friday afternoon from a Las Vegas hospital hours after suffering rib and hip bruises in a vehicle collision on a Nevada highway, his office and a hospital spokeswoman said.

The vehicle that Reid was in, one of four vehicles in a caravan going north on Interstate 15, was involved in the multi-vehicle crash around 1 p.m. PT, Nevada Highway Patrol spokesmen Loy Hixson said.

Reid was discharged from University Medical Center shortly before around 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m. ET), hospital spokeswoman Karen Gordon said. For more, check out this story from CNN.com's Political Ticker.

      Harry's a pretty tough old bird. If anyone can survive it would be him.

      Please look up the definition of "Communist." Also, a man who's trying to help America isn't Anti-American. On the flip side, the last two presidents (Bush who increased the debt by about 6 Trillion, and Obama who has increased it just as much) would be considered as Anti-American.

      You should be ashamed for wishing death on someone. It's amazing at how much we've progressed as a species, but your stupidity is a crass reminder that we still have a long way to go.

      Christopher, NICE. and if you're talking about Benghazi – it was 8 hours while obama was in vegas trying to stir up votes. All you people need to wait and see that Mitt Romney IS going to be the next president and IT WEILL be by a landslide. Goodbye Obamanomics~!

    Heh...hope he's okay but, how does one get into a collision on a Nevada highway? Those things are practically empty...relatively speaking.
