Prayers up for Tiger Woods. Woods was involved in a car accident and had to be extracted from the vehicle with the “jaws of life”!
Golf legend Tiger Woods was seriously injured Tuesday in a one-car accident that called for a “jaws of life” rescue in Southern California, authorities said.
Woods’ vehicle was going north on Hawthorne Boulevard at Blackhorse road, on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, when it crashed and sustained “major damage,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
Woods was the driver and only occupant of the vehicle, the statement said.
“Mr. Woods was extracted from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life,'” the sheriff added.
He was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries, the statement said. Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, told Golf Digest on Tuesday afternoon that Woods was in surgery for multiple leg injuries.
