Golfer Tiger Woods Injured in Car Accident

作者:Mario Ritter 发布日期:2-24-2021

American professional golfer Tiger Woods was seriously injured on Tuesday in a car accident while driving near Los Angeles, California.

He was taken to the hospital and was undergoing surgery for leg injuries, recent reports said. Rescue workers used a tool known as "the jaws of life" to take him out of the car.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said Woods' car rolled over. His car was the only one involved in the crash.

Mark Steinberg is Woods' manager. He confirmed the accident, and said: "He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support."

A television news helicopter flew over the area and recorded video of a car on its side with heavy damage. The Los Angeles Times reported the car rolled over "several" times and Woods was not able to get out of the car on his own.

Woods, 45, is one of the most successful professional golfers of all time. He has won 15 major championships and most recently won The Masters in 2019 after missing a good deal of time recovering from a back injury.

Woods recently had another back surgery and he said he was not sure if he would be ready to play in this year's Masters in April.

The last time Woods played was in a tournament with his 11-year-old son Charlie, in December.
