Fifteen-time major champion Tiger Woods was hospitalized Tuesday morning following a severe single-car accident in L.A. County. According to reports, multiple officials were required to extract Woods out of the vehicle with the “jaws of life.”
“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,” said Los Angeles Officials. “The vehicle was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard, at Blackhorse Road, when it crashed. The vehicle sustained major damage.”
Officials would go on to say that “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.”
Woods was in LA for his annual Genesis Invitational golf tournament hosted at the Riviera Country Club in the Pacific Palisades. He was also planning to partake in a two-day content shoot with Golf Digest/GOLFTV.
The cause of the crash is still being investigated by the LAPD and the extent of Woods injuries remain unclear.
