Driver recounts encounter with commerce secretary

Topics: From the Wires,

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A California man says former U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson seemed confused and disoriented during a bizarre series of traffic collisions last month that led to his resignation.

Rich Sanchez says his vehicle was struck twice by Bryson’s car on June 9 as he and his older brother were waiting for a train to pass. Los Angeles County prosecutors declined to file charges against Bryson this week, saying doctors determined he suffered a seizure.

Bryson was initially cited for felony hit-and-run.

Sanchez said Thursday that if Bryson knew he had a pre-existing medical condition he should have stayed off the road because he put his own life and others at risk.

Sanchez and his brother suffered minor injuries and have been working with Bryson’s insurance company to resolve the matter.
