Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has been taken via ambulance to a Las Vegas hospital after what's reported to have been a five-vehicle crash on Interstate 15 involving his motorcade.

According to the Las Vegas Sun, a source reports that Sen. Reid had no visible injuries but his trip to University Medical Center Trauma was a precaution. While more details on the crash - other injuries and how it happened - aren't currently available, the Sun did report, "Trooper Loy Hixson said five vehicles were involved in the accident: two vehicles carrying Reid and members of his party; two Metro Police vehicles; and one civilian vehicle."

Reid's wife, Landra, was scheduled to speak at an event in Las Vegas along with First Lady Michelle Obama.
