Is it common to have blood in urine if having pneumonia?

My father-in-law is currently in ICU with pneumonia. He is 70 and a lung cancer survivor (down to one lung). The had to intubate him and he seemed to be doing okay. Today nurses said there is some blood in his urine (wasn't there yesterday). Is this common?
