(LOS ANGELES) - John Bryson, the United Secretary of Commerce has been cited for felony hit-and-run charges in two Los Angeles traffic accidents. Bryson was treated at a hospital for injuries sustained in the crash, according to a joint statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department and the San Gabriel Police.

Secretary Bryson was involved in a traffic accident over the weekend,” the Commerce Department said. “He was taken to the hospital for examination and has been released. He has sustained no injuries and the investigation is ongoing.”

San Gabriel police spokesman Lt. Ariel Duran confirmed that Bryson is facing felony hit-and-run charges. He was driving in his Lexus in San Gabriel when he is accused of hitting another car in the rear. The car was occupied by three men who were waiting for a train to pass. Bryson talked to the men for a second before driving off, and the men followed him while calling the police.

“We did cite him for felony hit-and-run,” Duran 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.”

Bryson then hit another car just a few minutes later in another city called Rosemead. The car was being occupied by a man and a woman. Police found Bryson unconscious in his car and he was taken to the hospital.

“When the first officer rolled up on the scene, he was behind his wheel unconscious,” Duran said. “But our officer did speak with him at the hospital.”

David Axelrod, senior advisor to President Obama, said that he doesn’t have any further details.

“This news broke overnight so I don’t have anything to contribute to that. Obviously it’s concerning, but I’m not going to comment because I don’t know any of the details,” he said.

RIGHT, I don't believe anything this Administration comes up with. Where is the report that he had a seizure? It's probably fake just like all the documents from Obama
