Tiger Woods is “awake, responsive and recovering” from surgery after serious accident
Tiger Woods is said to be awake and recovering from surgery, according to a statement posted early Wednesday on his official Twitter account.
He was involved in a serious car accident on Tuesday near Los Angeles, and now, he is “responsive, and recovering in his hospital room,” the statement said.
Woods suffered serious leg injuries and was trapped but conscious when emergency responders reached the scene of his one-vehicle rollover crash on a stretch of California road known for speeding and accidents, authorities said Tuesday.
According to Sheriff department, he was driving shortly after 7 a.m. PT in Rancho Palos Verdes, near Los Angeles, when the SUV he was using crossed a median and went across two lanes of road before hitting a curb, hitting a tree and landing on its side off the roadway in the brush.
