Authorities are likely to bring charges against either man.
Rock musician David Crosby, of Crosby, Stills and Nash fame, has struck and injured a jogger while driving his Tesla sedan in Santa Ynez, California. Crosby, 73, hit Jose Jimenez while driving 30 miles north west of Santa Barbara on Sunday evening, California Highway Patrol said in a statement.
David Crosby hit a jogger with his Tesla in California
Crosby was driving at the speed limit of 55 mph when he struck the jogger, who was airlifted to a local hospital with "multiple fractures and cuts." His injuries are not considered life-threatening. Authorities do not believe alcohol or drugs were a factor in the crash, though the incident is still under investigation. The musician stopped after the collusion and cooperated fully with authorities.
"David Crosby is obviously very upset that he accidentally hit anyone," a rep for the artist told E! News, "And, based off of initial reports, he is relieved that the injuries to the gentleman were not life threatening. He wishes the jogger a very speedy recovery."
Crosby, who also played with the rock group The Byrds, was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for his work with Crosby, Stills and Nash.
A spokesman for the Californian Highway Patrol said that Jimenez was on the wrong side of the road because the state law requires pedestrians to be moving against traffic when they're not in a residential or business zone. In other words, he was on the right and should have been on the left. Charges are unlikely to be filed against Crosby or Jimenez.
