Tiger Woods has been injured in a major car incident where he had to be “extricated from the wreck”. Woods is said to have been involved in a car crash near Los Angeles and has since been taken to hospital for treatment.

The incident happened in the early hours of Tuesday morning where paramedics and emergency services were called to the scene, first reported by BNO News.

It is claimed that only Woods’ vehicle was involved in what is being called a “roll-over accident.”

A statement by the LA County Sheriffs read: “On February 23, 2021, at approximately 7.12am, LASD responded to a single vehicle roll-over traffic 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 crashed.

“The vehicle sustained major damage.

“The driver and sole occupant was identified as a PGA golfer, Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods.

“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.

“The traffic investigation is being conducted by investigators from LASD Lomita Station.

There was no immediate information on Woods’ condition following the accident.

Woods has been recovering from his fifth microdiscectomy surgery on his back which he underwent last month.

Doctors said at the time that the procedure was successful with expectations that he would make a full recovery.

Speaking earlier this week, Woods admitted there was no return date on when he would make his comeback.

“There is no timetable, that’s one of the more frustrating things,” Woods said.

“I’m just waiting for another MRI to see if the annulus has scarred over and sealed. Once that happens, then I can dedicate to start doing more.

“As of right now, it’s still being very careful when you get out of bed, when you tie your shoes and all the little mundane rehab stuff to try and get the core stronger. I’d like to be able to do something a little more dynamic, but not quite allowed yet.”
