David Crosby Hit Jogger With His Tesla
Legendary rocker David Crosby struck a jogger with his Tesla in Santa Barbara County over the weekend.Crosby, the 73-year-old musician of The Byrds and Crosby, Still & Nash fame, was driving at the speed limit of 55 miles per hour on Sunday when he crashed his 2015 black Tesla into 46-year-old Jose Jimenez, who was jogging with his son on Baseline Ave. near Mora St. in Santa Ynez Valley, according to KEYT. Jimenez was "propelled" to the side of the road, California Highway Patrol spokesman Don Clotworthy said. Crosby immediately stopped after the incident to help Jimenez.
The runner was airlifted to Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara. Although he suffered from fractures and cuts, he did not have any life-threatening injuries. Jimenez's son was not injured in the crash.
"Mr. Crosby was cooperative with authorities and he was not impaired or intoxicated in any way," Clotworthy told CNN. "Mr. Crosby did not see the jogger because of the sun."
Crosby's publicist, Michael Jensen, released a statement on his behalf: "David Crosby is obviously very upset that he accidentally hit anyone... He wishes the jogger a very speedy recovery."
