  • At a news conference, which ended moments ago, the police chief and the fire chief of L.

  • A County they didn't answer follow up questions on how they knew that he wasn't impaired or how fast he was driving.

  • They did, however, say that whether fog, nothing like that was a factor in this crash.

  • Sheriff Alex Villanueva, the fire chief, Daryl Osby, said that Woods was conscious He is able to communicate with authorities when they arrived to pry him from this SUV that they're looking at, which has since been removed from the scene on a flatbed truck.

  • You see that tree that has been sheared there?

  • They confirmed that the car hit the median.

  • It rolled about 700 ft, and that indeed there was so much power there that the car actually shared a tree, but that the interior off the car, as bad as it looks on the outside, the interior was intact.

  • He was wearing a seat belt, which they said saved his life.

  • Here is what we know.

  • Tiger Woods involved in the single car rollover accident.

  • The call came in at 7:12 a.m. Pacific time in Ranchos Palace, Verdi's California.

  • It did come in from a neighbor who reportedly had heard the crash and called, uh, the L.

  • A.

  • County Sheriff's Office also said that the vehicle, as you can see this, is obvious.

  • It did sustained major damage, but again, not to the interior of the car.

  • And his agent, Mark Steinberg, has released a statement saying he's sustained multiple leg injuries that he underwent surgery this afternoon.

  • One of the other very insightful things we heard is that he was able to be taken as Ramona Shelburne joins us now outside of Harbor U C L A medical center.

  • He was able to be taken to their, which really was the most appropriate hospital given his injuries because his life was not believed to be in danger.

  • Ramona, they didn't have to take him to the nearest hospital.

  • So can you expound on that?

  • Why he is where he is.

  • Yeah, well, this is a trauma center, okay, and there's a couple of local hospitals nearby.

  • But when you have a serious trauma, they take you here because this they're equipped to deal with the kind of injuries.

  • The Tiger Woods was sustained.

  • You know, as of about 30 40 minutes ago, when I had checked, he was still in surgery.

  • Um, I get need to get another update on whether you're still in surgery, but there's there's some question of whether he will stay here.

  • I will be moved to another hospital.

  • That's in Westwood later on.

  • But, you know, right now, I I was listening to that press conferences.

  • Justus.

  • Well, as you were hand, and I thought, you know, that it was just a really compelling live live on the scene, um, comments from that, the first responder to the set where he essentially said, you know, to the scene where he said, You know, I try to keep Mr Woods calm and said it be more appropriate for L a fire department to remove you from the vehicle than me.

  • Um, he was alert.

  • He was talking.

  • He was in shock.

  • I mean, that was just that fits all the descriptions of, you know when people are first in car accidents.

  • Um, I was talking about patient who had just walked out of the hospital, had a procedure here earlier this morning.

  • And he said all the TVs inside that hospital are tuned into the local news coverage.

  • All the doctors, all the patients, all the staff, they know who's in this hospital today.

  • Andi, what's going on inside these walls that are right behind me?

  • That's something else, uh, that we confirmed.

  • And obviously you're there in Los Angeles and know the area.

  • Well, Ramona, was that where this accident happened?

  • And they said that he was indeed going north bound on Hawthorne Boulevard, north of Palace Various Drive, and he hit the media and he was coming from Terranea, which is Ah, resort there.

  • And he was on his way to Rolling Hills Country Club for a golf shoot with actually Drew Brees and Justin Herbert.

  • I'm sure you heard that report earlier from Shelley Smith give us a sense, though, of what they were saying about the slopes and curves in that area, and that it that it is a very dangerous area that's known to have accidents.

  • Yeah, you know, I've talked to a lot of locals who live right there.

  • I've actually driven by that area myself, and it's It's not.

  • It's not a freeway, right?

  • But people drive it like it is, Um, and you're going really fast, and there's curves in the in the media.

  • And if you see the footage there, it's not like a It's not like a wall.

  • It's just like a raised curb, so you might not even see it if you're going fast and you you don't know the area if you're not familiar with it.

  • Um, and I think everyone who's every all the locals I've talked to said, Yeah, that's where people have accidents right there, Um and so if if you're not as familiar, if this is how this is, what can happen.

  • And obviously he was going at a pretty high rate of speed down that hill, which contributed to this accident which contributed to him.

  • Uh, you know, it's 700 ft from where, from where he hit when we first struck the median.

  • Um and so I think that's that's really what we're you know, we're trying to piece together what happened here.

  • I talked to somebody who was on set with him yesterday.

  • Uh, with you saw the videos of him and Dwyane Wade.

  • And we've We've seen that, Um, obviously, this is pretty early in the morning and he was going to the set again from Terranea for this golf Digest suit on and And then I suppose he was gonna leave after that?

  • Yeah, yeah, golf TV.

  • Still waiting for his condition.

  • Emerged after the surgery.

  • Yeah, golf, TV shoot.

  • He was kind of teaching something that had been in the works for a long time and scheduled, obviously, on the back end of the Genesis Uh, invitational, Uh, the tournament, which was held to benefit his charity over the weekend.

  • So, Ramona, um, listen, you reported approximately a half hour ago, so now it's 3.

  • 42 l a time.

  • This accident happened fairly early in the morning.

  • And you you recently reported that he was in surgery.

  • So I'm looking forward to your reporting.

  • I'm sure it's really, really tough to get any kind of information out of there, as they made it very clear that Mark Steinberg and his representatives really don't want anything released on his condition right now.

  • But I'm sure a soon as you know more about the surgery itself, you let us know and we appreciate your reporting on this.

  • Well, I mean, the way it's described, you gotta hand it.

  • I mean, the way is described is really just very seriously leg injuries.

  • And they take their time with that, right?

  • Those surgeries could take a long time.

  • Thio, make sure you get it right.
