According to Alex Villanueva, the Los Angeles County Sheriff, Tiger Woods, an American professional golfer, was alive and conscious when first respondents rushed to the scene of a single-vehicle rollover crash on Tuesday morning. Villanueva states that Woods was driving at a comparatively high speed than normal at the time of the crash in a hilly area and that Woods was driving northward when his vehicle hit a center divider and flew some hundred feet.
Furthermore, he adds that there were no signs of damage when the emergency team arrived at the spot. His vehicle crossed the center divider with a high speed, to the point that it rested many hundred feet away so clearly that it specifies how they were going at a relatively – higher speed than normal. Though, because it is downhill, with curves and slopes, that specific area has a high rate of accidents, and it is common.
Villanueva adds that the 2021 Hyundai Genesis SUV’s front end was completely wrecked, while the interior was less or more intact. The responders transported Woods to Harbor UCLA Hospital, according to Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby. Osby explained from an earlier statement extracted using a snooping tool and an ax to take Woods out of his car.
Further, he adds that Woods was suffering from serious leg injuries but was in stable condition. Officials said that another crash occurred after Woods’ crash, but there were no injuries from that accident. The police station at Lomita Sheriff was continuing the investigation. Furthermore, officials clarify that Woods was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Woods was set to work with Discovery Networks
The officials didn’t release the circumstances around the wreck officially. Whereas, two sources told Fox News that Woods set to work with Discovery Networks for doing teaching lessons with many stars. Woods was seen with actor David Spade and NBA legend Dwyane Wade. On Monday, actress Jada Pinkett Smith also posted his snap with the golfer.
Additionally, he set to tape two additional lessons at the Rolling Hills County Club at 08:00 am local time – one with Los Angeles Chargers rookie Justin Herbert and the other with Drew Brees. Sources told Fox News that Woods was getting late when he departs the hotel in an SUV. In addition, the sources state that crews and handlers of Woods were getting ready and were waiting for almost two hours before hearing about the wreck.
A Discovery representative told Fox News that Woods set to continue filming Tuesday before the crash as Woods and the network have a long-term partnership. Discovery Network further states that everyone at the Network and GOLFTV wishes Woods a speedy recovery, and their thoughts are with him, his team, and his family.
Donald Trump wished a speedy recovery
Donald Trump, the former President of the United States, was also among those who wished Woods well. Previously, in 2019, Trump awarded Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom. Trump’s 2020 Senior Advisor Jason Miller tweeted the former’s president message on his official account.
Statement from Donald J. Trump, 45th President of the United States of America:
“Get well soon, Tiger. You are a true champion!”
