WASHINGTON, March 15 (UPI) -- U.S. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's wife has been discharged from a hospital after surgery for injuries suffered in a car crash, a family spoksman said.

Landra Reid, 69, suffered a broken neck, back and nose Thursday when a tractor-trailer rear-ended her minivan on Interstate 95 about 14 miles south of Washington, authorities said.

She underwent neck surgery at Inova Fairfax Hospital and was discharged during the weekend to recover at the couple's home in Washington, family spokesman Jon Summers told Politico in a story published Monday.

Reid was able to walk short distances and she was in good spirits, Summers said.

The couple's daughter, Lana Reid, 49, suffered minor injuries in the crash. The driver of the tractor-trailer, Alan Snader, 59, was charged with reckless driving.
