Commerce Sec’y Bryson Suspected in Felony Hit and Run

LOS ANGELES – 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. …

President Barack Obama swore in the former utility executive as the head the Commerce Department in October, after easily overcoming conservatives’ objections that his pro-environmental views made him unsuited for the job. …

Bryson is the former head of Edison International, the holding company that owns Southern California Edison. Bryson has also served on boards of major corporations including the Boeing Co. and the Walt Disney Co.

Bryson helped oversee Edison’s transformation into a leading wind and solar company and launched a plan to turn 65 million square feet of unused commercial rooftops into solar power stations with enough electricity for more than 160,000 homes.
