Woods was hospitalized on Tuesday after a car accident in the hospital, in which his vehicle suffered “great damage”, the Sheriff Department of the Los Angeles district communicated. Woods, the only occupant, was removed from firefighters and paramedics from the rubble and suffered “injuries in several legs,” said his agent in a statement towards the media.
In the declaration, the recognition for the doctors and the hospital staff of the Harbor UCLA Medical Center, the Sheriff Department of the Los Angeles district, and the fire department was expressed.
The sheriff of Los Angeles County, Alex Villanueva, said Woods drove with a “relatively higher speed than normal” when he crashed in a hilly area, and that Woods drove north when he met a middle divider and flew several hundreds of foot.
He found that there were no signs of impairment when the emergency personnel arrived.
