Tiger Woods car crash: Woods recovering from surgery to repair ‘significant’ leg injuries

by A.P.

Tiger Woods is recovering from surgery on “significant injuries” to his lower right leg sustained in a serious car crash in California on Tuesday morning.

Woods suffered multiple fractures in the horrific accident, when he careered off the road “at high speed” and was lucky to survive as his car rolled several times before coming to rest on an embankment.

The 45-year-old, who was on his way to Rolling Hills Country Club for a publicity shoot when the crash happened shortly after 7am local time, was pulled from the wreckage by emergency services and rushed to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center for surgery.

A statement issued on Woods’ social media platforms detailed the extent of his injuries, with chief medical officer Anish Mahajan giving an update on the complicated procedure after the golfing superstar had come out of surgery.
