Police are investigating two traffic collisions allegedly caused by U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson in the Los Angeles area that left him injured and unconscious, authorities said Monday.
One of the crashes was under investigation as a felony hit and run, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's department and the San Gabriel Police Department said.
Bryson, 68, was treated at a hospital for non life-threatening injuries following the crashes around 5 p.m. PDT Saturday, the agencies said in a joint statement.
"As far as we know he is still admitted," sheriff's deputy Tony Moore said early Monday. He declined to provide any other information, including the name of the hospital.
Commerce Department officials couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
