LAS VEGAS (AP) — A hospital spokeswoman says Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is in good condition after an apparent rear-end crash on an interstate through Las Vegas.

University Medical Center spokeswoman Karen Gordon told the Las Vegas Review-Journal his updated condition, but declined to provide specifics on injuries.

Nevada Highway Patrol spokesman Jeremie Elliott says six cars were involved in the chain reaction crash about 1:10 p.m. Friday on Interstate 15.

They include two police vehicles, two civilian vehicles, and two Capitol police vehicles.

The freeway runs parallel to the Las Vegas Strip.

It's not clear whether there were any other injuries.
