The incident occurred at 7.12 local time in Rancho Palos Verdes county, south of Santa Monica. The only car involved is Woods’ car which overturned. Eldrick “Tiger” Woods was the only person on board. From the images arrived you can see damage to the front of the vehicle. The car would have skidded, it would have shifted from one lane to another and ended up in a ditch. Rescuers pulled the golfer out using hydraulic shears. He was then transported to Harbor Ucla Medical Center.

The 45-year-old golfer is in California for the Genesis invitational Riviera. It’s just a testimonial, does not play for back problems. It’s not the champion’s first accident. In 2009 he crashed his SUV in Florida hitting a fire hydrant and a tree. From this incident the series of betrayals towards his wife Erin had come to light, who then filed for divorce. In 2017 he was found asleep at the wheel of his car and arrested. He said he had taken drugs without evaluating the consequences.
