David Crosby hit a jogger with his car while traveling 55 mph in California. The jogger, Jose Jimenez, did not suffer life-threatening injuries. Jimenez was airlifted to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, and he is expected to make a full recovery. According to reports, Jimenez and his teenage son were jogging on the right side on the road. Crosby told authorities that he did not see Jimenez, due to the brightness of the sun. California law requires pedestrians (including runners/joggers) to be on the left side of the road. Crosby was driving within the speed limit, and he was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Crosby is not expected to be charged in the incident. 

In the past, Crosby spent nine months in a Texas prison for drug possession of cocaine and heroin in 1982. Three years later, the rocker was involved in a hit-and-run accident, for which he was arrested for drinking and driving. Crosby was also charged with possession of drugs and a concealed weapon. The rocker went almost twenty years without any legal issues, until he was arrested and charged in 2004 for possession of weapon and drugs. Crosby illegally had two hunting knives, a pistol, and possession of marijuana. He spent several hours in jail, until he was eventually released on bail. Crosby plead guilty to the weapons charges, and he had to pay a $5000 dollar fine. In the end, Crosby’s drug possession charge was dropped and he didn’t have to face any additional jail time. Since his last arrest, Crosby hasn’t had any more issues with the law.

Besides his solo career, David Crosby was also a member of The Byrds, CPR, and Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young (still active). His solo projects include If I Could Only Remember My Name, Croz, Oh Yes I Can, King Biscuit Flower Hour, It’s All Coming Back To Me Now, and Voyage Box Set. The rocker was indicted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of The Byrds, and he was inducted again as a member of Crosby, Stills, & Nash. As a member of The Byrds, Crosby released twelve studio albums, and they put out a great number of singles. Some of their hits include “I’ll Feel a Whole Lot Better,” “Eight Miles High,” and “Mr. Tambourine Man” (Bob Dylan cover).
