His agent is saying multiple leg injuries, currently in surgery. He just had another back surgery recently. I hoping he can pull through this and recover.

I’m sorry I’m going to be a hard ass here. I respect his ability to play golf. But other than that, does he have any real merit as a person? Why does this make the new vs a neighbor who might experience something similar? I’d probably care more about my neighbor’s case. If he is a proponent of freedom and the constitution, that’s one thing. If this is just another celebrity in an accident, I’m not sure I care. Especially if he’s pro biden or BLM or whatever.

Wreck is pretty far off the road. DWI?

Do ya really gotta go there? Eek

Was there an angry woman with a gold club in her hand seen fleeing the area?

Wouldn't be his first. His last was in 2017 and he pretty much had the kitchen sink in his system. But - at 7am you have to be a pretty hardcore addict.

You’d think a guy like that would have a driver.

Dumbass should’ve hired a driver years ago. Thankfully no one else was injured by this idiot.

I see what you did there. Wink

This could easily be the end of his career. His body has been failing him for several years now and your legs and back are very important to golfing.

Just read alcohol was not a factor.

I've been to Rancho Palos Verde, a country club from the 1920's. The dining room is open to the public for lunch, BTW. It is on a very high and steep point overlooking the channel islands. Beautiful. The roads are steep and curvey. He was traveling down. Looks like he went down an embankment.

If this were Tom Brady, it would be news.
If this were Michael Jodan, it would be news.
If this were Clint Eastwood, it would be news.

That's the world we live in.

That SUV is trashed! When the engine leaves the vehicle, that’s some serious shit.

At first glance it does look pretty trashed....significant forces to that front end but overall not so bad....the car is totaled but the passenger compartment is pretty much untouched....A,B and C posts intact, roof line not buckled and no intrusion into passenger compartment....they said they used the hurst tools to extricate but from what I’m seeing is they probably just cut the windshield out and extracted him through there....unless his legs were pinned, I see no evidence of hydraulic tools being used

Woods, the only occupant of the SUV, was transported to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center by ambulance to be treated for "moderate to critical" injuries suffered in the crash, the Los Angeles County Fire Department told CNN. His injuries are not life-threatening, and it is believed he was conscious at the time he was extracted from the vehicle, LASD lieutenant Michael White told KCBS-TV.

Woods was reportedly "travelling at a high rate of speed" when he "lost control of the vehicle before crossing the center divider" with his SUV rolling multiple times, law enforcement sources told the Los Angeles Times.

Pain meds possibly? He is just coming off of back surgery after all.

(Replying to gcode)
True, I didn’t see any evidence of door/posts being thrashed with hydraulics either.
(If they did, that was the easiest door pop ever)
They might have used a ram to push parts away from his legs to clear the extrication but they certainly didn’t cut the frame and/or peel the roof to open it up.

Sorry for any thread drift, but does anyone know how long airbags stay deployed? Typically you think impact, they deploy, and then they're deflated. I've only seem them deflated at an accident scene. Seems like that might not be too much help if you're in a rollover lasting seconds.

Poor fellow!

I hope he can recover without too much pain.
