    Sounds like he may be ill...or maybe he suffers from a mental illness, which of course means he's ill...or maybe he was on drugs, and the first reports are wrong...or maybe his body was taken over by aliens.

    What would be worse than ill?

    From a legal standpoint, being drunk or high would be much worse.

    Story says drug and alcohol do not appear to be involved.

    I took TV's comment to mean he might have mental problems. That would be worse than ill.

    There is a great irony in the fact that U.S. The Sec of Commerce, while driving a Lexus ran into a Buick.

    AP says "seizure."

    Brain tumor? Early onset dementia?

    Sounds like Bob Novak.

    I don't think dementia causes seizures. If a seizure is what caused this he does have some kind of physical problem though.

    I was thinking more Frank Drebin.

    The seizure comment came from the PR folks at Commerce, so who knows.

    That explanation would make the most sense.
