David Crosby hits jogger with car

on March 23, 2015, 7:45pm

Legendary musician David Crosby was involved in a car accident that left a jogger with multiple fractures, abrasions, and lacerations early Sunday evening.

Crosby was driving his car in Santa Ynez, California at the posted speed limit of 55 miles per hour when he struck a jogger. The victim, 46-year-old Jose Jimenez, was jogging along Baseline Avenue when Crosby’s 2015 black Tesla hit him. The street is near Crosby’s home.

Though Jimenez’s injuries are reportedly not life-threatening, he was airlifted to Santa Barbara’s Cottage Hospital. Police say Crosby may have been blinded by the sun and did not see Jiminiez in the road. No type of intoxicant is considered to have played a role, and Crosby immediately stopped his car after the incident. TMZ reports that an investigation is on-going.

Crosby recently courted controversy by calling out Kanye West, Phish, and others on Twitter. Neil Young also blamed his former bandmate for the demise of Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young.
