Ouch. Singer-songwriter David Crosby hit a jogger with his Tesla while driving near his California home on Sunday, March 22, in Santa Ynez Valley.
The Crosby, Stills & Nash singer, 73, was driving 55 miles per hour when he accidentally clipped the jogger, who suffered multiple fractures and was airlifted to nearby Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, CNN reports. According to the outlet, the victim’s injuries were not life-threatening and Crosby stopped his car to help aid the victim.
“David Crosby is obviously very upset that he accidentally hit anyone. And, based off of initial reports, he is relieved that the injuries to the gentleman were not life threatening,” his rep tells Us Weekly in a statement. “He wishes the jogger a very speedy recovery.”
"Mr. Crosby was cooperative with authorities and he was not impaired or intoxicated in any way. Mr. Crosby did not see the jogger because of the sun," California Highway Patrol Spokesman Don Clotworthy told CNN.
Clotworthy also stated that the jogger was on the same side of the road as Crosby. Pedestrians, including joggers, are supposed to be on the left side of the road going towards traffic.
