Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's wife has been transferred out of a Virginia hospital's intensive care unit and is improving after she was seriously injured in an accident on an interstate highway near Washington.

Jon Summers, a spokesman for the senator, says Landra Reid's condition was upgraded on Saturday to good, two days after a tractor-trailer rear-ended the minivan she and their daughter were riding in on I-95.

Landra Reid underwent surgery Friday to stabilize her broken neck. Summers says doctors at Inova Fairfax Hospital have indicated that the 69-year-old is on a fast track for recovery.

He says there's no update on when she'll be discharged.

Landra Reid also suffered a broken back and broken nose. Doctors say she is not at risk of paralysis.
