SAN GABRIEL, Calif. (AP) -- Police say U.S. Commerce Secretary
John Bryson has been cited for felony hit-and-run following two Los
Angeles area accidents that left him injured and unconscious.

They said early Monday that the 68-year-old Bryson was treated at a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries following the crashes around 5 p.m. PDT Saturday.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's department and the San Gabriel Police Department say he was driving alone on a major street in San Gabriel when he allegedly struck the rear end of a vehicle, then left the scene after speaking briefly with the occupants.

The agencies say minutes later he struck another vehicle in a nearby community, and police arriving found him unconscious behind the wheel of his car.

San Gabriel Police spokesman Lt. Ariel Duran says Bryson was cited for felony hit-and-run, and prosecutors will determine later if he'll be formally charged.
