Updated 10:10 p.m. | A Capitol Police officer injured in the course of Thursday afternoon’s incident near the Capitol has been treated and released from a D.C. hospital.

MedStar Washington Hospital Center made the announcement late Thursday. Earlier, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid spoke by phone with the officer injured during Thursday’s chase incident, the Nevada Democrat’s office confirmed.

“The only thing I do every day is to make sure you and everyone who works up here is safe,” the officer told Reid, according to the majority leader’s spokesman.

The officer told Reid that he would be fine. The officer was airlifted from the Capitol after sustaining injuries in a crash with a female suspect’s car in today’s incident.

Reid is himself a former Capitol Police officer, having worked the night shift to help support his family during law school.

During his closing remarks on the Senate floor, Reid commended the injured officer and the Capitol Police for their efforts to protect senators and the Capitol community.

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

    I’ve been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    Hello! I know this is kinda off topic but I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Terrific blog by the way!
