Oops. Bumped into a couple of other cars over the weekend. Can’t leave the scene of an accident, even if you’re the Secretary of Commerce.
From the Los Angeles Times:
Bryson was driving a Lexus in the 400 block of South San Gabriel Boulevard shortly after 5 p.m. Saturday, when he allegedly rear-ended a Buick as it was waiting for a train to pass, according to a statement released by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department and the San Gabriel Police Department.
After briefly stopping to talk to the three men inside the Buick, Bryson left the location in the Lexus and then struck the Buick a second time, authorities said. The men followed Bryson’s car and called 911 to ask for police assistance.
Bryson continued to drive his Lexus into Rosemead, which is patrolled by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. There, he allegedly crashed into a second vehicle near the intersection of San Gabriel Boulevard and Hellman Avenue.
There authorities found him alone and unconscious behind the wheel of his car.
Well, looks like we’ll be having a new Secretary of Commerce. Anyway, there isn’t much commerce going on, so maybe we can skip it.
UPDATE: Commerce says Bryson suffered a seizure, according to Politico.
