Landra Reid released from Virginia hospital

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's wife has been released from a Virginia hospital, where she was taken after being seriously injured in a traffic accident.

Reid spokesman Jon Summers confirmed in an e-mail to The Associated Press tonight that Landra Reid has been released from Inova Fairfax Hospital.

The 69-year-old Landra Reid underwent surgery Friday to stabilize serious injuries suffered when a tractor-trailer rear-ended the minivan she and her daughter were riding in Thursday on an interstate highway near Washington, D.C. Summers said Landra Reid's condition was upgraded Saturday to good.

The Reids' daughter, 49-year-old Lana Barringer, suffered relatively minor injuries and was released from the hospital Thursday night.

Landra Reid suffered a broken neck, back and nose. The injuries were serious, but doctors said she wasn't at risk of paralysis.
