Tiger Woods Transferred To Cedars-Sinai Medical Center; Doesn't Remember Being in a Crash
Tiger Woods was transferred to a different Los Angeles hospital after receiving surgery for leg injuries suffered in a single-car crash this week.
The golfing legend was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles from Harbor UCLA Medical Center, where he underwent surgery for his leg fractures on Tuesday.
The hospital didn’t provide any other details, saying it was respecting patient confidentiality.
Woods was conscious and alert as he was being pulled out through the front windshield of his mangled luxury SUV following the morning wreck in Rancho Palos Verdes.
His injuries included a shattered ankle and two leg fractures. Authorities said he was not drunk at the time of the crash, and "he had no recollection of the crash itself".
Sheriff’s Deputy Carlos Gonzalez said, “I don’t think he was aware of how gravely he was injured at the time. It could be a mixture of adrenaline, it could’ve been shock.”
