LAS VEGAS -

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.

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

Officials in Reid's office said it wasn't immediately clear where the Democratic Senator was headed, but first lady Michelle Obama is set to give a speech in Las Vegas Friday afternoon, and Reid's wife Landra was speaking at the event.
