Tiger Woods Suffering From Memory Loss After Crash?

Tiger Woods Suffering From Memory Loss After Crash?

Tiger Woods suffered multiple serious leg injuries following a violent single-vehicle crash Tuesday morning in California.

In a tweet sent out on Wednesday, Woods’ representatives announced that he had undergone surgery on his lower right leg and ankle due to open fractures impacting both the upper and lower portions of the tibia and fibula bones.

Unfortunately, the damage from the accident was not limited to just Woods’ lower body.

According to Rex Hoggard of the Golf Channel, “Woods didn’t remember the single-vehicle crash he was involved in.”

During an interview with CNN, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva revealed that when Wood was at the hospital, “he was asked about it by the investigators and he had no recollection of the crash itself.”

During a virtual press conference on Wednesday, Villanueva also indicated there was no evidence that Woods was in any way impaired leading up to the crash.

“This is purely an accident,” Villanueva said.

Woods’ accident occurred on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes in California. His car ended up rolling over and responders needed to use the “jaws of life” to get him out of the vehicle.

Video quickly emerged of how Woods was driving in the lead-up to the crash, and it answered some lingering questions. The reason why the golf legend was in such a hurry also came out.

Woods had not played this season because he was recuperating from back surgery. Between that and now the lengthy recovery process that will come as a result of this accident, the road to recovery will not be an easy one for the 45-year-old.
