15-time Major champion Tiger Woods has been hospitalised after suffering ‘moderate to critical injuries’ from a serious car accident on Tuesday.
The Los Angeles County sheriff’s department said in a statement that Woods was involved in a ‘single-car roll-over traffic collision’ at about 7:12am US time.
His vehicle rolled off the side of the road, sustaining major damage in the process. Woods had to be extricated from the car by paramedics with the ‘jaws of life.’
