Tiger Woods “awake, responsive” after emergency surgery on leg following car crash

February 24, 2021

Tiger Woods is “awake, responsive and recovering in his hospital room” after being seriously injured in a rollover car crash in Los Angeles County, his team said in a statement early Wednesday.

The latest: Per the statement, the 45-year-old golfing great underwent “a long surgical procedure on his lower right leg and ankle” at the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center Tuesday night.

  • Anish Mahajan, the center’s chief medical officer and interim CEO, said in the statement Woods “suffered significant orthopaedic injuries to his right lower extremity that were treated during emergency surgery.”
  • The medical team inserted a rod into his leg, while injuries to his foot and ankle bones were stabilized with screws and pins, Mahajan added.

The big picture: Woods was involved in a rollover car crash in Los Angeles County on Tuesday morning, the LA County Sheriff’s Department said. The vehicle sustained “major damage” the sheriff’s department said.

  • The department initially said Woods was removed from the wreck with the “jaws of life” but Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby later said a different tool was used to remove him, per NBC.
  • “Deputies at the time, they did not see any evidence of impairment,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said at Tuesday afternoon press conference.
  • Woods was the only occupant of the vehicle at the time of the crash, the sheriff’s department said. Authorities said crash occurred on a road known for accidents.

What they’re saying: “It’s very fortunate that Mr. Woods was able to come out of this alive, because this is an accident prone stretch of road,” said Deputy Carlos Gonzalez at a press conference Tuesday. “We’ve seen a number of accidents on this stretch of roadway.”

This post has been updated with further information about the car crash from Los Angeles County officials and the Woods’ team.
