For the first time since shattering his right leg four months ago in a horror car accident in California, Tiger Woods, 45, was was spotted hobbling through a Los Angeles International Airport.

On February 23, 2021, Tiger Woods was involved in a serious rollover car accident in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. The wreck was a single-vehicle collision and Woods was the sole occupant of the vehicle, which was traveling north along Hawthorne Boulevard. The front of the Genesis GV80 SUV was destroyed but the interior remained intact; the safety features possibly saved his life, leaving him with less traumatic injuries, according to the Los Angeles Sheriff.

Tiger was taken to the Harbor–UCLA Medical Center by ambulance. The incident was under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which said the car “sustained major damage,” and that Woods was driving over 80 mph, nearly twice the speed limit, before he crashed. No charges were filed. Woods’ agent later said that he sustained multiple leg injuries and had surgery for non-life-threatening injuries. It was reported that he sustained broken bones in both of his legs and “compound fractures”. The sheriff involved in the incident said that Woods had “no recollection” of the crash during questioning at the hospital.

The golf legend, was reportedly traveling on a private jet. He was accompanied by his 37-year-old girlfriend Erica Herman.
