A KABC-TV helicopter over the scene of Woods' accident showed a car on its side with the front end heavily damaged. Airbags appeared to be deployed. The wreckage appeared to be just off the side of a road on a hillside.

A sheriff's department spokeswoman said Woods' representatives would address his injuries. Yesterday, Tiger Woods said he's didn't know when he would return from a fifth back surgery, and he could not give a definitive answer Sunday when asked if he would be at the Masters.

"God, I hope so", Woods on the CBS broadcast of The Genesis Invitational. Woods, at Riviera to hand out the trophy as the tournament host, had a microdiscectomy Dec. 23. It was the fifth surgery on his back, and the first since a procedure to fuse his lower spine in April 2017.

"I'm feeling fine. I'm a little bit stiff. I have one more MRI scheduled so that we'll see if the annulus (fibrosus) is scarred over finally and see if I can start doing more activities. But still in the gym, still doing the mundane stuff that you have to do for rehab, the little things before I can start gravitating towards something a little more"

Woods had not played since he joined 11-year-old Charlie at the PNC Challenge a few days before his surgery. "I don't know what the plan is", he said when asked if he would try to play before the Masters.
