‘No evidence of impairment’ in Tiger Woods crash

Legendary golfer Tiger Woods was reportedly not impaired at the time he flipped his vehicle in a single-car crash, after the local authorities were unable to find evidence on-scene.

Woods, 45, was involved in a single-car accident on Tuesday morning after he hit the median, crossed multiple lanes of traffic, before hitting the curb, a tree, and ultimately flipping the vehicle multiple times, according to county Sheriff Alex Villanueva. Fire authorities had to extricate Woods from the vehicle. He was wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash, according to Deputy Carlos Gonzalez, who was the first on-scene.

“No evidence of impairment at this point in time,” Villanueva said during a Tuesday evening press conference. “The first contact was with the center median, and from there, then crossed into the opposing lane of traffic, hit the curb, hit a tree, and there were several rollovers during that process.”

Daryl Osby, the fire chief, told reporters that Woods was unable to stand on his own and was taken from the vehicle on a backboard for “spinal precautions.” He noted that Woods was not airlifted to the UCLA hospital where he was taken for surgery.

Woods was supposed to be spending Monday and Tuesday filming with GOLFTV and was on his way to meet up with NFL quarterbacks Justin Herbert and Drew Brees, according to ESPN.

“Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries,” his manager Mark Steinberg said. “He is currently in surgery, and we thank you for your privacy and support.”

Gonzalez also noted that the stretch of highway is dangerous and fatal accidents have happened in that location previously.
