Tiger Woods 'lucky to be alive' after crash: Latest updates, details as golf star recovers from car accident

  Tiger Woods 'lucky to be alive' after crash: Latest updates, details as golf star recovers from car accident Tiger Woods has been injured in a roll-over collision in the Los Angeles area. Here's what we know.Woods was injured in the crash at roughly 10:12 a.m. ET on Tuesday. Reports indicated first responders from the Los Angeles County Fire Department — who reportedly were notified of the crash by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department at 10:22 a.m. and responded to the scene at 10:28 a.m. — had to use a pry bar and axe to remove the golf star from the vehicle.

His US-registered Trek-Segafredo team said he was treated at a hospital where he received stitches for multiple abrasions, the deepest of which was in his right knee. He was "otherwise fine" and taken to his hotel, the team tweeted, though it added that Tiberi would not continue in the race.

It's unclear what caused the 19-year-old to crash. Racing in his aero time-trial position in a straight line, he appeared to lose control of his bike and wobble before going down dramatically at high speed. His team said it was investigating what happened.

Despite his crash, Tiberi - who won the junior world championship time trial in 2019 - was his team's fastest finisher on Monday. He ended up finishing 19th fastest overall on the stage, with an average speed of nearly 33 mph.
