Pro golfer Tiger Woods was involved in a horrific car accident on Tuesday morning. First responders rushed to the scene after a single-vehicle rollover crash occurred said Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva.
Villanueva said that Woods "[vehicle] crossed the center divider, to the point that it rested several hundred feet away so obviously that indicates they were going at a relatively -- a greater speed than normal. However, because it is downhill, it slopes and it also curves," said the Sheriff. "That area has a high frequency of accidents. It’s not uncommon."
Woods was rushed to the hospital following his accident and taken into surgery. His agent Mark Steinberg said, "Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support."
After the devastating news broke, several sports stars took to Twitter to share their words of encouragement for the 45 year old golfer.
