Tiger Woods was hospitalized yesterday (February 23rd) following a serious car accident in L.A. County. According to TMZ, original reports said that the accident was so bad that officials used the jaws of life to free him from the vehicle, but they later said those reports weren't true.

Officials said in a statement, “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. 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 PGA golfer, Eldrick 'Tiger' Woods.”

Tiger's agent Mark Steinberg confirmed that the golf icon sustained multiple leg injuries and went into surgery.

In a news conference, Deputy Carlos Gonzalez — who was the first person to arrive at the crash scene, said that Tiger is lucky to be alive. He was wearing a seatbelt during the crash and officials believed that it saved his life.

Gonzalez also said that Tiger was lucid and could speak at the crash scene and did not appear to be under the influence of alcohol or any other substance.

The 45-year-old was in the area for his annual Genesis Invitational golf tournament at the Riviera Country Club in the Pacific Palisades.
