Tiger Woods, 46, of the US’Golf Emperor’ was urgently taken to a hospital in a car overturned accident. It is known that life is not affected.
The Associated Press reported on the 23rd (local time) that Woods had an accident in Los Angeles (LA) county around 7:15 am.
The LA County Sheriff said in a statement that “the vehicle was severely damaged and a vehicle cutting machine was used to pull Woods out of the accident vehicle.” The local fire department announced through Twitter that “Woods was taken to the hospital in critical condition.”
Woods was alone in the accident vehicle, and the extent of the injury is not known.
Woods manager Mark Steinberg said, “Woods was in a car accident and injured several legs.” He avoided detailed comments on the severity of the injury, but only asked “respect your privacy.”
The Associated Press said, “It seems that there was an airbag device in the vehicle,” and said, “The car debris in the accident is scattered on the hillside next to the road.”
The US sports media ESPN quoted a police source and said, “The injuries to Woods are not life-threatening.”
Woods is reportedly staying in California to attend the Genesis Invitational event held at the Riviera Golf Club last weekend.
