JASMINE VIEL: All right. We want to interrupt your programming to bring you this breaking news in Rancho Palos Verdes. This is where golfer Tiger Woods, we are just learning, was injured in a single car rollover crash. Firefighters and paramedics, they rushed to the scene on Hawthorne Boulevard right near Blackhorse Road. This happened just after 7:00 AM. They used the jaws of life to get woods out of his vehicle, out of his car.
There are unconfirmed reports that Woods broke both of his legs. Now you may recall that back in November of 2009, Woods crashed his SUV outside his Florida mansion, and his wife at the time, Elin, used a golf club to break the back window to get him out of that Escalade during that crash. These are live pictures we are bringing you from Skynine of this crash, again, a rollover crash.
Right now we are hearing that Woods was the only person inside of this vehicle, but a wooded area there right off of the road. And of course, we're going to keep you on top of this breaking news story. Now, there are outlets reporting that Woods, he had been here for the Genesis Invitational at the Riviera Country Club. This is a tournament hosted by Woods' foundation. Woods, apparently he did not play.
He was still recovering from back surgery on top of all of this, but he was there to present the award to congratulate the tournament winner. So he has been here for a couple of days, and now this sad turn of events. This crash in which he was injured, and it looks bad. Now, it looks worse because, again, they had to use the jaws of life through the top there to get him out of this car, and we don't know what led up to this accident.
