John Bryson, 68, U.S. Commerce Secretary, was involved in two hit and run accidents on Saturday June 9, 2012. He voluntarily took a Breathalyzer test and the test did not detect any alcohol use.
Bryson was taken to the hospital after the accident as he suffered a seizure.
A blood test was taken and authorities are awaiting results.
If the blood tests do not reveal drugs or alcohol, then criminal charges will be unlikely.
Bryson was driving when he allegedly rear-ended a Buick as it was waiting for a train to pass. After briefly stopping to talk to the three men inside the Buick, Bryson left the location and then struck the Buick a second time.
The men followed Bryson and called 911 to ask for police assistance.
Bryson continued to drive and he allegedly crashed into a second vehicle.
Officers found him alone and unconscious behind the wheel of his car.
Bryson was cited with felony hit-and-run but was not booked in jail because he was taken to the hospital.
