A senior White House official slipped and fell Monday morning and is recovering from a dislocated jaw and a concussion, Office of Personnel Management Director John Berry said Monday afternoon.

The injury to an unnamed White House official was first revealed by Berry in a Monday interview with Federal News Radio; a White House official identified the accident victim as White House political director Patrick Gaspard.

Neither Berry nor White House officials could say where the incident occurred -- whether it happened on the White House grounds or nearby.

The White House said Monday evening Gaspard is not in the hospital; a source earlier described him as having been taken to one.
