WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House says Commerce Secretary John Bryson will take a medical leave as he undergoes tests and evaluations after suffering a seizure in connection with two traffic accidents in the Los Angeles area.
White House press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement Monday that President Barack Obama's thoughts were with Bryson and his family.
The Commerce Department said Bryson transferred his functions and duties as secretary to Deputy Secretary Rebecca Blank, who is now acting commerce secretary.
The department said Bryson suffered a seizure on Saturday and had "limited recall" of the events related to the incident.
