Sen. Reid taken to hospital after Vegas car crash

LAS VEGAS - Troopers say Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been taken to the hospital after what appears to be a rear-end crash on an interstate through Las Vegas.

Nevada Highway Patrol Office spokesman Jeremie Elliott said he doesn't know Reid's condition after the crash, which happened about 1:10 p.m. Friday on Interstate 15.

The freeway runs parallel to the Las Vegas Strip.

Elliott said six vehicles were involved in the apparent chain-reaction crash, including two Las Vegas police vehicles, two civilian vehicle and two Capitol Police vehicles.

Elliott said four tow trucks were summoned. It's not clear whether anyone else was injured.
