The LA Times reports Bryson has been hospitalized.

Bryson was driving alone in a Lexus on a major street in San Gabriel when he allegedly struck the rear end of a vehicle occupied by three males that had been stopped for a passing train.

The secretary spoke briefly with the occupants and then hit their car again as he departed, the officials said. The three followed him while calling police.

“The preliminary investigation indicates the collision was caused by suspect John Bryson, who is the United States Secretary of Commerce,” the statement said.

Bryson then allegedly caused a second collision minutes later, also on San Gabriel Boulevard, in the nearby city of Rosemead, striking a car occupied by a man and a woman, the police agencies said.

Bryson was found alone and unconscious in his car and was treated at the scene before being taken to a hospital

Two people in the first collision were treated by paramedics after complaining of pain, the officials said. The couple involved in the second crash also complained of pain but declined medical aid.

Damages to the vehicles was minor

President Barack Obama swore in Bryson as the head the Commerce Department in October.
