Commerce Secretary

The US Commerce Secretary was involved in some accidents on Saturday.

According to the San Gabriel Police Department, Bryson’s Lexus rear ended a Buick that was stopped at a railroad crossing late Saturday afternoon in San Gabriel. Bryson spoke with the Buick’s male passengers, then drove away, “hitting the same car again as he left,” police said.

The men followed Bryson and called police. They witnessed Bryson hit a second car.

When police arrived, Bryson was “alone and unconscious behind the wheel of his vehicle.” Bryson was treated for minor injuries at a local hospital, where the officers cited him for felony hit-and-run.

Sounds odd, no?  Wait for the explanation.

“He suffered a seizure,” Commerce Department spokeswoman Jennifer Friedman said in a statement on Monday. “He was taken to the hospital for examination and remained overnight for observation. He was released and has returned to Washington. The investigation is ongoing.”

A seizure?  Was this before striking the Buick at the railroad crossing? Or before talking with the occupants of that car? Or before striking it the second time? Or before striking the second vehicle? Or just before the police arrived?

I was under the impression that seizures inhibited physical control, not impairment of judgement. Hmmm.
