Former Secretary of Commerce John Bryson recently stepped down from his post after a series of minor car accidents in June. Though his career has been negatively affected by the incident, as could happen to any government official living in Fairfax County under similar circumstances, Bryson will not face criminal charges in relation to the incidents after investigators found that a seizure suffered by the former secretary was to blame.
John Bryson, the Secretary of Commerce, is taking a medical leave of absence from his post following a series of car accidents that he says were caused by a seizure he suffered behind the wheel. Officers in California, where the incident occurred, are investigating and may levy felony criminal charges.
A Fairfax County woman who has been charged in connection with a car accident in which another woman died says the accident occurred because the woman attacked her. Her criminal defense attorney said his client "was just trying to get away" from the fatally injured woman, who was punching her through the car window.
