Tiger Woods was hospitalized after a serious car accident in Los Angeles County on Tuesday morning – officials demanded the jaws of life to free him from the vehicle.
“On February 23, 2021, at approximately 7:12 a.m., the LASD responded to a collision with a car when the Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes border overturned,” officials said.
“The vehicle was traveling north on Hawthorne Boulevard, near Blackhorse Road, when it crashed. The vehicle suffered severe damage.”

“Mr. Woods was retrieved from the wreckage with the jaws of life by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, and then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries.”
It is not clear what caused the accident. The cops are investigating.
The 45-year-old Tiger was in the area for his annual Genesis Invitational golf tournament at the Riviera country club in the Pacific Palisade.
Only this week he took pictures with similar stars David Spade and Dwayne Wade – and announced his recent back surgery can protect him from the upcoming Masters tournament in Augusta, Georgia.
This isn’t the first time Tiger Woods has been involved in a high-profile car crash – he crashed his jeep in a 2009 crash at his Florida home.
In 2017 he was arrested after the cops found him unconscious behind the wheel of their car. Tiger said he had been taking prescription drugs before the incident and was unaware of the effect the medication would have on him.
