LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-NV, is out of the hospital after his motorcade was involved in a six-car crash on Friday afternoon.
It happened on Interstate 15 near Sahara Avenue just after 1 p.m.
The senator was released around 3 p.m. from University Medical Center (UMC). According to his spokesperson, he suffered a bruised hip and ribs. The investigation into how the accident occurred is ongoing.
Crumpled and surrounded by shattered glass, the damaged vehicles of the senator's motorcade were still strewn about the northbound lanes of I-15 on Friday night.
The crash involved Metro and Capitol police vehicles as well as civilian cars.
Moments after the crash, Reid was taken to UMC as a precaution. His office said the 72-year-old walked into the emergency room on his own.
Members of Reid's detail and a staffer were also injured and received treatment at UMC.
Earlier in the day, the senator spoke at the Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas and was on his way to an interview with a Spanish-language newspaper when the crash occurred.
Two lanes of I-15 were shut down and traffic was snarled for several hours. The senator's accident came just over two years since his wife and daughter were injured in a serious crash in Virginia.
The only things damaged in Friday's crash were vehicles.
Following the crash, Reid gave a brief speech at the Smith Center for the Performing Arts as part of a memorial service for longtime Las Vegas resident Bob Forbuss. A source at the Smith Center told FOX5 the program was changed to allow Reid to speak near the beginning.
Reid appeared to be in good shape.
