WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. Commerce Department says Secretary John Bryson suffered a seizure in connection with two traffic accidents in the Los Angeles area that left him injured and unconscious.
The Commerce Department says Bryson was taken to the hospital for examination and remained overnight for observation. He was released and returned to Washington.
The department says an investigation is ongoing.
Bryson was cited for a felony hit-and-run tied to two Los Angeles-area traffic crashes on Saturday, though he has not been formally charged.
