(CNN) -- U.S. Secretary of Commerce John Bryson was cited with felony hit-and-run after allegedly causing two car accidents within minutes of one another in southern California, a police spokesman told CNN early Monday.
Authorities cited Bryson at an area hospital where he was treated for injuries sustained in the accidents, Lt. Ariel Duran of the San Gabriel Police Department said.
Commerce Department spokeswoman Jennifer Friedman said Bryson was involved involved in an accident, but was uninjured. He has been released from the hospital, she said in a statement.
The accidents occurred Saturday evening, officials said.
Bryson, who was driving a Lexus, rear-ended a Buick that was stopped at a railroad crossing in San Gabriel, police said Sunday in a statement.

I'd reserve judgment on this until I hear what they find out at the hospital. I remember when Robert Novak had an event like this, and it was funny until it turned out to be a brain tumor."Today, [the American voter] chooses his rulers as he buys bootleg whiskey, never knowing precisely what he is getting, only certain that it is not what it pretends to be." - H.L.

Perhaps they just misused the term "seizure".

There are different types of seizures, but there are also neurological occurences that get called seizures, but the person is conscious the whole time. I had a friend who had a convulsive disorder from a head injury, and he would be unconscious, technically, but would talk sometimes during his seizure. Of course, he was curled up on the floor convulsing and his speech usually amounted to shouting at his girlfriend "no doctors, no hospitals", but it was a strange split between conscious and unconscious behavior.
