Several local television stations in Las Vegas are reporting that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was admitted to the hospital today following an accident involving his motorcade.

Although details on the accident are slim for now, wishes for a speedy recovery poured in quickly.

We at Twitchy also send along our best wishes and will update the story as details emerge.


Reid has been released from the hospital. His office said he suffered hip and rib bruises in the crash.


The New York Observer notes that one of Reid’s hometown newspapers, the Las Vegas Review Journal, misidentified Reid as a Republican in its initial report. Was the newspaper expecting a scandal to erupt?
