Tiger Woods suffers grievous injuries in car accident

The world held its breath Tuesday awaiting news of Tiger Woods' condition after the golf legend suffered serious injuries in a rollover crash near Los Angeles.

Woods, 45, was conscious and alert when emergency responders pulled him from his vehicle, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.

Traffic investigators could take days or weeks to determine the cause of the crash as they investigate whether speed, fatigue, or operator error were factors, or whether Woods struck something in the road, causing him to lose control.

Woods was driving shortly after 7 a.m. PT in Rancho Palos Verdes when the SUV he was using crossed a median and went across two lanes of road before hitting a curb, hitting a tree and landing on its side off the roadway in the brush. No other vehicles were involved.

Woods needed to be extricated from his vehicle by a rescue crew using a pry bar and ax, according to LA County Fire Chief Daryl Osby.

Woods was driving downhill on a winding road, in an area known as a trouble spot for speeding and accidents, Villanueva and Sheriff's Deputy Carlos Gonzalez said.

Weather was not a factor in the accident, officials said in a Tuesday news conference. There was no evidence of impairment, but the crash is under investigation, officials said.

Asked at the news conference whether Woods may have been on the phone at the time, Villanueva said investigators will have to ascertain whether distracted driving played a role.

What's the status of his injuries?

Woods was taken by ambulance to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in serious condition with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the LA County Fire Department.

Woods suffered compound fractures in his legs, a source told.

A compound fracture "is an open fracture, and the bone actually protrudes from the skin, something that would have been noticeable at the time of the injury and ... something that obviously needs to be treated very quickly. "He was able to communicate, and he was conscious," Villanueva said.
