Singer-songwriter David Crosby of The Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash, hit a jogger while driving his Tesla in in Santa Ynez, California, on Sunday.

The 73-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was driving toward the sun when he hit 46-year-old Jose Jimenez, who was hospitalized with broken bones, cuts, and bruises, The Associated Press reported.

Neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor in the accident, and Crosby was driving at about the posted speed limit of 55 mph.

"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.

Us Weekly reported that the singer’s representative said, “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.”

Jimenez was with his son at the time of the accident, KEYT-TV reported. His son was not injured.

Local resident Pete Ganvini told the station that the angle of the sun at this time of year makes that location dangerous.

“If you don't have sunglasses or a visor it is impossible to see what's going on. This is a dangerous area. It is just not a good spot to be jogging," he told the station.
