Commerce secretary takes medical leave after crashes
Seizure blamed for Bryson’s role in hit-and-runs
A succession of traffic accidents in Southern California over the weekend raises questions about whether Commerce Secretary John Bryson has a medical or legal problem - or both. The bizarre series of events happened Saturday afternoon when Bryson hit a car stopped for a train - twice - then rammed into another vehicle a few minutes later. He was found unconscious in his car, and government officials said Monday he had a seizure, which could play a role in whether he is charged with felony hit-and-run.
