U.S. Commerce Secretary

Suffers Seizure

After Alleged Hit-and-Run

U.S Commerce Secretary John Bryson reportedly suffered a seizure in L.A. Saturday after smashing his Lexus into another car -- and fleeing the scene.

According to reports, Bryson then hit a SECOND car near the scene of the first accident -- and was found soon after, unconscious behind the wheel. It's unclear exactly when Bryson suffered the seizure, before or after the second accident.

68-year-old Bryson was transported to a nearby hospital, where he was treated and released Sunday.

Bryson has been cited for hit-and-run in connection with the first accident. The case hasn't been sent to the D.A. yet, so it's unclear if he'll be prosecuted.

Cops say drugs or alcohol do not appear to have been a factor. Only minor injuries were reported in the car accidents.

He should have slid over to the passenger side and told the police that Lindsay Lohan was driving and ran off. No ticket would have ever been issued.

The seizure story was a nice touch. He should give his quick-thinking staff member a raise for coming up with that one. Thank goodness for cell phones, eh, Mr Bryson?

a friend of mine has had epilepsy for years - while medication works most of the time, he does have an occasional episode and right before it happens he has that `aura' feeling - dizzy, problems with spatial skills, hand-eye coordination, sensitive to light and sound - no one knows how he was feeling right before the seizure but it's def not unusual to have pre-seizure problems. Thank goodness no one was hurt.
