LAS VEGAS (AP) - Two drivers in a convoy accompanying Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have been cited as the cause of a crash on a Las Vegas freeway that injured the senator.
The Nevada Highway Patrol on Thursday night released a report on the Oct. 26 rear-end crash involving six vehicles, four of which were escorting Reid as a security detail.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/SCGes1 ) Michael William Percival, of Washington, D.C., caused the crash by following another car in the caravan too closely.
Percival was cited for an unsafe lane change, and another driver, Cory J. Mikkelson, of Las Vegas, was cited for following too closely.
Reid sustained rib and hip contusions in the crash. The 72-year-old was taken to a hospital as a precaution and discharged a few hours later.
