Tiger Woods isn’t facing any charges at this time stemming from Tuesday’s single-car crash in California.
“He was not drunk. We can throw that one out,” Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Wednesday.
Villanueva added that the road on which Woods was driving has seen 13 total crashes since January 2020.
The L.A. County Sheriff’s Department announced emergency personnel had extricated the 45-year-old from his vehicle, which had “sustained major damage.” Villanueva said later that day in a press conference the car rolled over “several times” in addition to striking the curb and a nearby tree.
Woods’ representatives provided an update on his status early Wednesday morning, announcing he was “currently awake, responsive, and recovering in his hospital room” following surgery on multiple leg injuries.
Anish Mahajan, the chief medical officer at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, said the golf legend “suffered significant orthopaedic injuries to his right lower extremity,” including “open fractures” to his tibia and fibula.
