It was a bad weekend for mysterious celebrity crashes in Southern California. A day after Lindsay Lohan plowed a rented Porsche into the back of an 18-wheeler, Commerce John Bryson rear-ended two other vehicles while driving his Lexus in Los Angeles County.
The jury isn't out on what caused Lohan's crash, but Bryson claims his was caused by a seizure.
Witnesses in the first vehicle said that Bryson talked with them, but drove away. He reportedly crashed into another car, and was later found unconscious in his vehicle a short time later. The Commerce Department's Public Affairs team has been adamant that he passed a preliminary alcohol screening, although blood alcohol content test results are still pending.
Bryson, who was in California to deliver a commencement address, was kept in an area hospital overnight for observation. According to a Commerce Department spokesperson, neither he nor the occupants of the vehicles he allegedly hit suffered more than minor injuries. He has since returned to Washington.
