SAN GABRIEL, Calif. — U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson suffered a seizure in connection with two Los Angeles-area traffic crashes that led to a felony hit-and-run citation, officials said Monday.
Bryson, 68, was treated at a hospital following the crashes around 5 p.m. PDT Saturday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department and the San Gabriel Police Department said in a joint statement.Now, he had two separate accidents and was later found unconscious in his car. The wording, though, is awfully generic - "[t]here was no immediate indication that alcohol or drugs played a role in the collisions" sounds an awful lot like "when the door to the car opened, only three beer bottles fell out". I am by no means an expert on seizures, but I'm unclear how he could have one, clear up enough to drive off, then have another causing a second crash. Is it possible? Certainly. Would the media have granted a Bush administration official the same leeway? Doubtful.
And also of note was that Secretary Bryson was driving a Lexus - you know, one of the brands that only the wealthiest 1% can afford...
That is all.
