Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) dislocated his shoulder and suffered a bump to the forehead after slipping Wednesday morning while exercising in the rain.
A spokesman for Reid said the Democratic leader fell after one of his regular early morning runs and was treated immediately at George Washington University.
The aide said the injury was not serious and Reid is feeling fine. The leader was back at the Capitol Wednesday morning, holding meetings with colleagues.
Reid fell after leaning with his hand on a wet parked car. His hand slipped and the leader tumbled to the ground.
The fall left him with a contusion above the left eye.
Reid, who was described as "joking all the way to the hospital," did not address the Senate as usual Wednesday morning, but a spokesman said it was because he was attending an event for Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.).
