Photos of the horrid crash scene in Southern California that left Tiger Woods with serious injuries on Tuesday, February 23, have surfaced.
“On February 23, 2021, at approximately 7:12 AM, LASD responded to a single vehicle roll-over traffic collision on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Ranchos Palos Verdes,” officials said in a statement. “The vehicle was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard, at Blackhorse Road, when it crashed. The vehicle sustained major damage.
“The driver and sole occupant was identified as PGA golfer, Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods,” the statement confirmed. “Mr. Woods was extricated from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life’ by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries.”
A KABC-TV helicopter over the scene of Woods' accident showed a car on its side with the front end heavily damaged. Air bags appeared to be deployed. The wreckage appeared to be just off the side of a road on a hillside.
At the hospital, he was rushed into surgery where he was treated for compound fractures in at least one leg, law enforcement sources said.
“He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support,” Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, said in a statement. He also confirmed his client suffered “multiple” leg injuries.
The 45-year-old was in Souther California for a two-day content shoot with Golf Digest/GOLFTV after serving as host for the PGA Tour's Genesis Invitational over the weekend. Pictures surfaced on social media of Woods smiling with celebs like Dwayne Wade and David Spade at Rolling Hills Country Club on Monday.
