David Crosby was driving his Tesla through wine country in California Monday evening when he hit a jogger, who was later airlifted to the hospital after suffering multiple fractures and lacerations.
The founding member of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young said he was blinded by the sun when he struck the man going 55 mph, the posted speed limit. The 46-year-old’s injuries were not life threatening.
His publicist issued a statement on his behalf.
“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. He wishes the jogger a very speedy recovery.”
Neither drugs nor alcohol were involved, police say, and he stopped immediately to offer assistance to the man.
