LOS ANGELES (CNN) — Singer-songwriter David Crosby hit a jogger with his car Sunday evening, a spokesman said.

The accident happened in Santa Ynez, California, near where Crosby lives.

Crosby was driving at approximately 50 mph when he struck the jogger, according to California Highway Patrol Spokesman Don Clotworthy. The posted speed limit was 55.

The jogger suffered multiple fractures, and was airlifted to a hospital in Santa Barbara, Clotworthy said. His injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

“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,” said Clotworthy.

According to the spokesman, the jogger and Crosby were on the same side of the road.

Pedestrians are supposed to be on the left side of the road walking toward traffic, Clotworthy said. Joggers are considered pedestrians.

Crosby is known for weaving multilayered harmonies over sweet melodies. He belongs to the celebrated rock group Crosby, Stills & Nash.
