Update: Bryson reportedly suffered a seizure. Which surely gets him off the hook felony wise.
This is interesting, in a tragic way. Secretary of Commerce John Bryson has been cited in a felony hit-and-run after causing two or more accidents:
(CBS News) — According to the written statement by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department, Bryson was behind the wheel of a Lexus which rear-ended another vehicle waiting for a train to pass in the city of San Gabriel at about five in the evening. The statement says Bryson spoke with the three males in the other car, then drove away, hitting their Buick again in the process.
Bryson was then “found alone and unconscious behind the wheel of his vehicle,” after allegedly causing another accident in the neighboring city of Rosemead.
Police say that while Bryson has now been formally cited in the hit-and-run, it will be up to the District Attorney’s office to decide whether formal criminal charges should be filed.
It sounds like he was either blacked-out drunk or has a serious medical issue. Which means he’s probably fucked and will soon choose to spend more time with his family … Not sure if an accident where you chat with the other party counts as a hit and run though.
