Sen. Harry Reid's, D-Nev., wife and daughter are recovering from injuries they suffered in a four-vehicle crash on Thursday.

The Senate majority leader's daughter, Lana, has been released from Inova Fairfax Hospital in Virginia. However, his wife, Landra, is in intensive care with a broken nose, neck and back. She is in stable condition.

"Mrs. Reid has a broken nose, broken back and broken neck. Lana has a neck injury and facial lacerations. Both Mrs. Reid and Lana are conscious, can feel their extremities, and according to doctors their injuries are non-life threatening," Reid Spokesman Jim Manley said. "Sen. Reid has been to the hospital and appreciates the support he and his family are receiving from Nevadans and his colleagues in the Senate."

Police say a semi-tractor trailer struck Reid's vehicle from behind in stop-and-go traffic. The driver has been charged with reckless driving.

Reid visited the hospital and then returned to Capitol Hill for a meeting with Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. According to Manley, Reid is now back at the hospital.
