Gossip site TMZ is reporting that Tiger Woods has been involved in a serious car accident in Los Angeles. There is no word on what caused the accident, but he was extracted from the car by firefighters and paramedics with the “jaws of life.” Woods is currently at a local hospital getting treatment for his injuries.
“Jaws of Life” are used when a car is upside down and a driver or passenger is pinned inside. In this type of situation, rescue workers will use a set of tools commonly called the “Jaws of Life” to cut away the car and get the driver and/or passengers out.
The outlet states, “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 Ranchos Palos Verdes. The vehicle was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard, at Blackhorse Road, when it crashed. The vehicle sustained major damage.”
Woods was in town for the Genesis Invitational golf tournament in the Pacific Palisades.
The story is developing.
