A jogger is recovering after he was struck and injured by singer-songwriter David Crosby in Santa Ynez, California, according to the California Highway Patrol.

The Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young singer was driving at 55 m.p.h., the posted speed limit, when he struck Jose Jimenez, 46, on Baseline Avenue Sunday evening, the CHP told TheWrap.

Crosby, 73, was driving his 2015 Tesla sedan and did not see Jimenez on the right side of the road because of the sun, the police report said.

Jimenez was knocked to the ground and suffered multiple fractures, abrasions and lacerations on the road, which is about two hours north of Los Angeles. He was airlifted to a hospital in Santa Barbara, but his injuries were not considered life-threatening.

The “Deja Vu” singer was not impaired by drugs or alcohol, the CHP said. Crosby immediately stopped and was not injured in the incident.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee is a long time resident of Santa Ynez and owns a home near the scene of the accident.

The cause of the collision remains under investigation, and CHP said it does not expect to file any charges.
