Authorities are investigating a series of traffic collisions in the San Gabriel Valley involving U.S. Secretary of Commerce John Bryson, authorities said Saturday.
Bryson was found unconscious in his vehicle and has been hospitalized, officials said.
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.
Bryson was treated at the scene by Los Angeles County firefighters. Authorities said drugs or alcohol do not appear to have played a role in the crash. They said Bryson was cooperative. He was cited for felony hit and run but was not booked into jail because he had been admitted to the hospital. His condition was not known.
According to his official biography, Bryson was chairman of Edison International, the parent company of Southern California Edison for 18 years until 2008.
"Throughout a distinguished career in which he's led nonprofits, government agencies and large companies, he's been a fierce proponent of alternative energy," President Obama said in announcing Bryson's nomination last year.

Just a real world job creator! Think of the folks who will be employed to clean up after his messes...watch for more of this innovative activity as the election nears...:))
West of the Rockies that should be 'Best Foods Avenue.'
And they can make this statement because the tox screen that takes hours and days has already been made?
I wonder if CNN’s Jack Cafferty reported on this incident? Jack is said to be an expert on hit-and-run accidents.
The economy made him sick.
Sounds like Ambien again.
Anyway, hopefully the felony charge sticks and this clown’s career ends. I remember when Southern California Edison (the biggest electric utility in Southern California) chose him, given his history as an ‘environmental lawyer’. People that live there are paying through the teeth for power, in no small part due to him.
The Private Sector is doing just fine!
Changing the subject.....
...strange, but the media (NYT, LA Times, and Washington Post) is actually reporting this on their web pages.
Maybe this is simply the Administration’s way of removing him from office?
They have been instructed to cover up this DWI.
It is a coincidence, but today I was thinking over the John Wheeler case - so very strange - and as far as I know, no real explanation was ever given. He was wandering around disoriented, which seems similar to this.
The article says he was a founder of the National Resources Defense Council, so he’s a colleague of Robert Kennedy Jr.
I’m not sure intoxication is needed for these people to feel entitled, and do weird things when they have to interact with the little people. They’re intoxicated with themselves.
if he wasn’t diabetic Friday, he will be today.
it’ll be his new found condition he never knew he had.
Really weird indeed...left the scene and then hit the same car again? How in the world?
“West of the Rockies that should be ‘Best Foods Avenue.’
LOL! That mayo thread WAS a lot of fun!
But, sigh, now it’s monday, back to the hard work of trying to keep up with the nincompoops of the Obama administration.
The official story will be bullsh!t as usual.
Or a stroke, maybe a slow bleed.
Amazing how quickly they can determine that. It takes months for toxicology results to come back on people like Whitney Houston and Amy Winehouse, even though we know the both of them abused drugs and alcohol. Yet if it's somebody in the Obama Administration, they can tell us right away that drugs and alcohol had nothing to do with it.
So he hits one car, tries to run, then hits the same car a second time, then flees again, hits a second unrelated vehicle with so much force he’s knocked out. And our wonderful law enforcement officers don’t arrest him, or test him for alcohol or drugs. Two sets of rules, one for serfs one for lords.
