Initial reports said that the “jaws of life” had to be used to remove Woods from the SUV. However, the Los Angeles Fire Department refuted that report as their spokesman said that Woods went through the windshield after fire personnel used a pry bar.
The vehicle that Woods was in rolled over. The golfer was in the area, as he served as a tournament host of the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California.
The accident reportedly happened at approximately 7:12 am PST.
Golf Digest has reported that Woods was on his way to Riviera Golf Course, where he was scheduled to give lessons to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
Woods had to be stretchered from the SUV. Officials have said that he was wearing a seatbelt when he crashed.
“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 Rancho Palos Verdes,” Los Angeles County Sheriff’s said in a social media post. “The vehicle was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard at Blackhorse Road when it crashed. The vehicle sustained major damage. The driver and sole occupant were identified as PGA golfer Eldrick ‘Tiger’ Woods.
“Mr. Woods was extricated from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life’ by Los Angeles Firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries.”
At this time, it’s not clear what caused Woods to have the accident. This is an ongoing investigation.
