U.S. Secretary of Commerce John Bryson has been cited for felony hit-and-run after two car accidents in Los Angeles Saturday night.
A report by the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department says Bryson rear-ended a vehicle, and after speaking to the occupants he struck the car again while trying to pull away.
A few minutes later he allegedly struck another car in a nearby community.
Bryson, 68, was later found unconscious behind the wheel of his vehicle and was treated at a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The people in the other two cars suffered minor injuries.
"We did cite him for felony hit-and-run," San Gabriel Police spokesman Lt. Ariel Duran said said. "Later the case (will be) submitted to the DA's office which will make a determination on what they are going to charge him with."
The sheriff's department, which has launched an investigation into the incident, says a "pre-existing medical condition" may have played a role in the incident.
