Hold fans Tiger Woods in her mind.
According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the 45-year-old golfer sustained injuries after being involved in a car accident on Tuesday, February 23.
The department found that LASD Lomita Station responded to a collision with a single vehicle rollover on the border between Rolling Hills Estate and Rancho Palos Verdes, California at around 7:12 a.m.
“The vehicle was traveling north on Hawthorne Boulevard on Blackhorse Road when it crashed,” said a tweet from the department. “The vehicle was badly damaged.”
The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle was later identified as Woods. “Mr. Woods was rescued from the wreck with the ‘Jaws of Life’ by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics and then taken by ambulance to a local hospital for his injuries.”
LASD Lomita Station is investigating the incident. No further details were released at this point.
Shortly after the news broke, Golf Digest wrote Daniel Rapaport reportedly shared a statement from Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg. “Tiger Woods was in a car accident in California this morning that left him with multiple leg injuries,” it reads. “He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and assistance.”
