Woods was involved in a single-car cr*sh in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning. In a statement obtained by “Extra,” the Los Angeles Sheriff Department said, “On February 23, 2021, at approximately 7:12 AM, LASD responded to a single-vehicle roll-over tr*ff!c collision on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes.”
“The vehicle was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard, at Blackhorse Road, when it cr*sh*d. The vehicle sustained major dam-age,” the statement continued. “The driver and sole occupant was identified as PGA golfer, Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods. Mr. Woods was extricated from the wr-eck.”
In another statement, Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg told Golf Digest, “Tiger Woods was in a single-car acc*d-ent this morning in California where he suffer-ed multiple leg !njur!es.
He is currently in s*rg*ry and we thank you for your privacy and support.” According to The Los Angeles Times, Tiger was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
On condition of anonym!ty, law enforcement sources told the outlet that Woods was allegedly driving at a high rate of speed and lost control of his SUV, which rolled multiple times before coming to a stop.
Woods’ condition has been described as “moderate to cr!t!cal” after he was report-edly removed from the vehicle’s windshield.
L.A. County Fire Department sp*kesman Henry Narvaez said, “Because of the situation and the way that you found the vehicle, he wasn’t able to open the door and come out. We extricated him, we helped assist him out of the vehicle.”
Investigators are currently determining what may have caus-ed the cr**h. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department has released audio dispatch from the accident. You can listen for yourself below.
