Ex-Commerce Secretary Won’t Be Charged In SoCal Accidents

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles County prosecutors have declined to file criminal charges against former U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson who was involved in a trio of traffic accidents last month.

Evidence was presented by San Gabriel police to county prosecutors Monday. The district attorney’s office announced Tuesday there will be no charges.

Bryson resigned June 21 after suffering a seizure, saying he didn’t want his health to be a distraction from his job. Authorities said Bryson struck a car stopped for a train twice and then rammed into another vehicle with his car a few minutes later. He was found unconscious in his vehicle.

Bryson had been cited by police for felony hit-and run.
