The golf legend was involved in a serious car accident in the upscale LA area known as Ranchos Palos Verdes on Tuesday, February 23rd, 2021.

Tiger Woods was the only occupant in a single-car accident that occurred just after the seven o’clock hour and was transported to a nearby hospital after rescuers were able to free him.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said that the vehicle sustained “major damage” and Woods was freed from the wreckage after rescuers were forced to use the ‘jaws of life’ device in order to reach him.

Woods was recovering from back surgery he had on December 23, 2020. This was his fifth spinal surgery after the first fusion he underwent in 2017.

His agent released a statement following the crash stating that the PGA legend was in surgery after suffering multiple leg injuries.

CBS Los Angeles’ Sports Director Jim Hill says that prior to the accident Woods was shooting a documentary for Golf Digest with Dwayne Wade and David Spade.
