Tiger Woods has spoken out with an official statement following a car crash earlier today (February 23).
Earlier in the day, it was revealed that the 45-year-old pro golfer was involved in a single vehicle car accident that required surgery
“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.”
Later that afternoon, the LA Sheriff’s office responded to press asking for more details and revealed that the crash was not due to impairment.
Now, Tiger and his team are speaking out after the crash.
“We thank everyone for the overwhelming support and messages during this tough time…He has undergone a long surgical procedue on his lower right leg and ankle after being brought to the hospital,” it reads, before adding another statement from his physician, Dr. Anish Mahajan.
