Tiger Woods accident: Donald Trump, Mike Tyson, Lindsey Vonn and others react after rollover crash

On Tuesday, 15-time major champion Tiger Woods was hospitalised after suffering “multiple leg injuries” during a rollover crash in California. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the crash occurred at 7.12 am near the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes.

Woods was heading northbound on Hawthorne Ave. when his vehicle crossed onto the wrong side of the road and flipped onto a hillside. A neighbour called the 911 to alert authorities of the accident, and Woods was conscious and able to communicate when they arrived on the scene.

Personnel from the LACSD said that the interior of the SUV Woods was driving remained intact and him wearing the seatbelt allowed him to escape what “otherwise would have been a fatal crash.”

Former US President Donald Trump on Tuesday tweeted through an associate a get-well message for golfer Tiger Woods following a serious car accident in California.

“Get well soon, Tiger. You are a true champion!” Trump said in a quote shared on Twitter by his spokesman and adviser Jason Miller.

“I’m sick to my stomach.”

“It hurts to see one of your … closest friends get in an accident,” Thomas continued. “Man, I just hope he’s all right. Just worried for his kids. I’m sure they’re struggling,” fellow golfer Justin Thomas said after the fatal accident.

Here is how others have reacted to the rollover crash:
