Tiger Woods was more seriously injured in his February car crash than initial reports indicated, including being “knocked unconscious” and suffering an “open fracture,” it was revealed Wednesday.
The golf legend’s gruesome wounds were detailed in an incident report filed by Los Angeles first responders, obtained by TMZ Sports.
“Knocked unconscious, laceration to the lower front jaw, bruised right and left rib cage, fractured right tibia and fibula, possible right ankle injury,” the report read, under the section labeled “describe injuries.”
The report also gives more detail about Woods’ leg injury, reading “open fracture, mid shaft on his right leg, below knee,” according to the outlet.
Woods was driving at nearly twice the speed limit, when he lost control of his SUV, drove across the median and hit a tree at 75 mph in Rancho Palos Verdes, officials said Tuesday, after reviewing the vehicle’s black box.
The golfer broke several bones in his lower right leg when the SUV rolled over. Investigators said he braked too late.
Even though Woods was doing 87 mph in a 45 mph zone, sheriff’s said Woods will not be charged with speeding, because police officers did not observe him breaking the law.
“I am so grateful to both of the good samaritans who came to assist me and called 911,” Woods’ tweeted Wednesday.
“I am also thankful to the LASD Deputies and LA Firefighter/Paramedics.”
The 45-year-old is recovering in Florida.
