Tiger Woods was conscious and had serious injuries to both legs when found, police say

Tiger Woods was conscious and had serious injuries to both legs when found at the crash scene, police say.

Authorities say the golfing legend was in a “serious” condition but was able to communicate with them when they arrived on the scene in Rancho Palo Verdes, California.

Fire Chief Daryl Osby said that firefighters used tools and an axe to remove Mr Woods from the car at the scene of the accident.

Sheriff Alex Villanueva told a press conference that deputies had found “no evidence of impairment” from drugs and alcohol at the crash site.

“No impairment was found at this time but it will be the subject of the investigation,” he said.

The Sheriff said that “It would have been a fatal crash” if the interior of the Genesis GV80 SUV had not remained intact in the crash.

“The interior of the car was intact which kind of gave him the cushion to survive,” said Mr Villanueva.
