The first photos to come out from the Tiger Woods car crash in Los Angeles show a decimated vehicle in a field, and the latest photos to be released show more detail, including new information on the location.
Los Angeles authorities said Woods was rescued from the vehicle with the jaws of life. Officials have not said how severe the PGA golfer’s injuries were, saying only that he was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Woods’ agents told ESPN he was in surgery for “multiple leg injuries.”
