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.9Woods was driving a Genesis GV80 when he rode into a medianCredit: AP:Associated Press 9Sheriffs did not administer a sobriety test given his high speedCredit: EPA 9The Sheriff's Office confirmed he was speeding at the time of his crashCredit: EPA
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.9The crash happened in a grassy areaCredit: Splash News 9The car was an invitation at the tournament where he was playing this weekendCredit: EPA 9The Sheriff's Office is still at the scene and reported there was a second vehicle accident nearby with no injuriesCredit: EPA

LA County May Return Beachfront Land Taken From Black Family
MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles county officials may return a beachfront property that was seized from a Black family nearly a century ago.
Manhattan Beach used eminent domain in 1924 to force Willa and Charles Bruce, the city's first Black landowners, off the land where they lived, KABC-TV reported Friday. They also ran a resort for Black families during a time when beaches in the strand were segregated.
Part of the land was developed into a city park. It is now owned by Los Angeles County and house the county's lifeguard headquarters and training center.
County Supervisor Janice Hahn said she's exploring options to restore justice for the family, including giving the land back, paying for what they lost or leasing the property from them so the lifeguard building can remain at the location.
“I wanted the county of Los Angeles to be a part of righting this terrible wrong.,” Hahn told the station.
Meanwhile, a Manhattan Beach city task force is recommending that the City Council considers issuing an apology and creating a commemorative plaque to acknowledge the Bruce family.
Anthony Bruce, one of the family’s last living direct descendants now living in Florida, says the seizure robbed him of his family’s legacy.
“It was a wrong against the Bruce family,” says Anthony Bruce. “I think we would be wealthy Americans still living there in California... Manhattan Beach probably.”
