Tiger Woods involved in serious car accident; had to be extricated from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life’

This is not NHL news, but everyone feels for the star golfer…


This is not hockey related, but we all know how golf isn't very far from the players of the NHL. 

Tiger Woods was injured in a serious car accident in California Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has just announced. 

Woods was involved in a single-vehicle car roll-over. The star golfer’s vehicle sustained major damage and Woods had to be extricated from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life.’ 

The 45-year-old golfer was taken to the hospital. He was rushed into surgery for a compound fractures in at least one leg. 

The Sheriffs Department is conducting an investigation of the accident and is expected to share more details later on. Woods was the driver and only occupant of the vehicle, the statement said.

A statement came  from Mark Steinberg, Tiger's Agent: "Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support."
