US Commerce Secretary John Bryson Investigated for Multiple Hit and Run Collisions … Found Unconscious Behind the Wheel of his Car (Update: Takes Medical Leave)
Barack Obama’s US Commerce Secretary John Bryson is being investigated for multiple hit and run collisions Saturday afternoon in the San Gabriel Valley area while driving his Lexus. Bryson was finally found unconscious behind the wheel of his car. The initial account is that drugs and alcohol did not appear to play a role in the crashes. That would seem to be a bit premature. Bryson was cited for felony hit and run; however, was not booked into jail because he had been admitted to the hospital. Booze, drugs, seizure or any other medical condition … I think ‘We the People’ are entitled to an explanation. Let’s see if the most transparent Presidency provides an answer. We can be thankful that no one was injured during these multiple hit and runs.
Commerce Sec John Bryson – The Politico
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.
Just curious, I wonder if it were you or I if we would not have been booked into jail on felony hit and run? What a metaphor. Obama crashing the economy and his US Commerce Secretary crashing cars.
U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson suffered a seizure in connection with two hit-and-run crashes Saturday in the San Gabriel Valley, an agency spokeswoman said Monday.
Department spokeswoman Jennifer Friedman confirmed the information to The Times on Monday morning.
