The 72-year-old Democratic senator, who was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the accident, walked in on his own to the University Medical Center Hospital, his office said in a statement.

He has been cleared for release from the hospital, the statement said. Some of Reid's security detail and a staffer also had minor injuries and were evaluated at the hospital, the statement added.
