The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department initially said the golfer needed to be extricated from his vehicle with the "jaws of life," but later clarified that the "jaws of life" were not used to extricate Woods.
Woods was the sole occupant in the crash near the Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes neighborhoods of Los Angeles. Officials said the crash occurred at around 7:12 a.m. and the vehicle sustained "major damage."
"Prayers up for the GOAT @TigerWoods who was in an accident this morning," Jada Pinkett Smith tweeted. "Was just with him yesterday. Don’t take not even a MOMENT for granted! I know you’re good because your Tiger within is a beast!!!"
Piers Morgan noted that it was "great news" upon finding out that Woods' injuries were "NON-life-threatening." Los Angeles Sheriff's Department Lt. Michael White previously told CBS Los Angeles that the golfer suffered "non-life-threatening injuries."
