ABC legal analyst and Mediaite founder Dan Abrams discussed Commerce Secretary John Bryson‘s multiple car crashes on Monday’s Good Morning America, telling host George Stephanopoulos that, if Bryson had a pre-existing condition such as a tumor or epilepsy, “it’s possible” that he would not be held legally responsible for the series of crashes.
That said, he cautioned everyone to keep in mind that “there are first questions about whether he should have had a license, if that’s the case,” citing California’s specific requirements regarding who can and cannot have a license.
It’s possible for charges against Bryson to be dropped, he explained, if authorities conclude that there’s no way he could have known about this and simply had what he described as a “medical episode,” at least when it comes to any criminal charges.
