WASHINGTON — A Commerce Department official says Secretary John Bryson has a "limited recall of the events" in which he had a seizure and was involved in two traffic accidents in the Los Angeles area.

The official said the department could not confirm the cause of the seizure and when it happened in relation to the car accidents. Bryson had not had a seizure before, the official said.

The official said Bryson was back in the office Monday and in touch with his doctors who were monitoring its progress.

The Commerce Department official spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss details of the incident.

Police say Bryson was involved in two traffic accidents in the Los Angeles area on Saturday and was cited for felony hit-and-run, although he has not been charged.
