TIGER Woods was driving downhill when he crossed a median and overturned in shrubs before being pulled from his car's windshield.
Police did not administer a sobriety test to the star golf player, who was apparently conscious after the crash early Tuesday morning in Los Angeles.
Woods was driving on a downhill road when he crashed into a median and his car flipped over into some shrubbery.
However, the Los Angeles Sheriff's Office apparently did not administer a sobriety test on the award-winning golfer as there was no reason to, considering the speed he was potentially going and his injuries were non-life-threatening.
At a news conference several hours later, Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Woods' airbags were deployed, and the car's bumpers and exterior were all heavily damaged.
"After all of that, the interior was more or less intact which kind of gave him the cushion to survive which otherwise would have been a fatal crash," Villanueva said.
The 45-year-old was driving in Los Angeles when he struck the median and flipped over just after 7AM Tuesday morning.
Law enforcement sources told the Los Angeles Times that Woods was "speeding" at the time of his crash.
They added because of the high rate of speed he was traveling at, he lost control of his car before crossing the center divider.
The LA Sheriff's Office confirmed Woods was driving the car, with a neighbor saying Woods was trapped "off the side of the road" according to a 911 dispatch call, obtained by The Sun.
Woods was driving a Genesis GV80, the car the golf tournament he played in this weekend was promoting.
The Sheriff's Office said his car flipped over several times before coming to a halt. The airbags were also deployed.
This is the third car crash Woods has been a part of.
His most infamous one was the day after Thanksgiving Day when he over a fire hydrant and into a tree.
