Woods had to be extricated from the vehicle with the “jaws of life” tools, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. Woods was taken to the hospital with unspecified injuries. The vehicle sustained major damage, the sheriff’s department said. A KABC-TV helicopter over the scene of Woods’ accident showed a car on its side with the front end heavily damaged. Air bags appeared to be deployed. The wreckage appeared to be just off the side of a road on a hillside. Woods, whose first name is Eldrick, was the sole occupant of the vehicle, the sheriff’s department said. The crash occurred shortly before 7:15 a.m. Tuesday, officials said. A sheriff’s department spokeswoman said Woods’ representatives would address his injuries. A call to Woods’ agent went to voice mail.
