President Obama's closest political advisor, David Axelrod, called allegations against Commerce Secretary John Bryson "concerning."

"This news broke overnight," Axelrod told CBS's Erica Hill. "I don't really have anything to contribute to that. Obviously, it's concerning. But I'm not, you know, going to comment because I don't know any of the details."

Bryson was allegedly involved in a series of hit and runs over the weekend in California.

Hill responded, "Tough way to start the week after last week and this weekend. Any concern about that?

Axelrod then changed the topic.

UPDATE: The Associated Press reports Bryson had a seizure.
