Tiger Woods is being showered with love and support from celebs following his serious car accident.
As we reported, the golf legend was involved in a single vehicle roll-over traffic collision in Los Angeles County on Tuesday morning. At the time, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Woods was removed from the vehicle using the “jaws of life,” noting the golfer’s injuries are “non-life threatening” and that they don’t believe alcohol played a role in the crash at this time. A source from the fire department would later dismiss the “jaws of life” claim.
In the wake of the news, countless famous fans and fellow athletes fled to social media to share well-wishes. One of those stars was Woods’ ex-girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, who wrote on Twitter:
“Praying for TW right now.”

In the video, Wade told the camera as Woods smiled in the background:
“I told y’all that I was about to do something amazing today, and I got an opportunity — I say the ‘GOAT,’ he’s not comfortable with it — but had an opportunity to come out here with this guy. Tiger, thank you for teaching me something.”
Gabrielle Union’s husband then asked Tiger:
“How good am I, or how bad am I?”
Woods replied, “Uh, good?” while shaking his head before bursting out in laughter:
“We’re getting better!”
In a follow-up post, Wade wrote:
“The reason I picked up a golf club. Yesterday was a pretty cool day!”
In a statement, Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg said Tiger “suffered multiple leg injuries” from the crash and “is currently in surgery.” Our thoughts are with Tiger and his family as this story develops.
