Our thoughts are with Tiger Woods after his devastating car accident on Tuesday morning (February 23).
His agent, Mark Steinberg, said the 45-year-old golf legend suffered “multiple” leg injuries as a result of the crash.
“He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support,” he told Golf Digest.
“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.”
Footage from the devastating crash has been made public.
Our thoughts are with Tiger and his family.
