Hours after Tiger Woods was involved in a car accident in Rancho Palos Verdes, a crane hoisted the SUV he was driving upright to move it onto a flatbed truck.



There was a second crash when a vehicle that had apparently stopped to help Woods got hit, said Christopher Thomas, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department. That wreck was very minor, and no one was hurt.

Woods' crash occurred shortly before 7:15 a.m. about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of downtown Los Angeles, on the border of the upscale communities of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, officials said.

Woods was in Los Angeles over the weekend as the tournament host of the Genesis Invitational at Riviera, where he presented the trophy. He was to spend Monday and Tuesday filming with Discovery-owned GOLFTV, with whom he has an endorsement contract. A tweet Monday showed him in a cart smiling with comedian David Spade.

According to Golf Digest, also owned by Discovery, the TV shoot was on-course lessons to celebrities, such as Spade and Dwyane Wade. He did not play.


The 15-time major champion last played Dec. 20 in the PNC Championship with his 11-year-old son, Charlie. He had a fifth surgery on his back, a microdiscectomy, two days before Christmas and gave no indication when he would return. The Masters is April 8-11 and when asked if he would be there during the CBS telecast, Woods replied, "God, I hope so."

The area where Tiger Woods was involved in a car crash Tuesday morning has "treacherous terrain," according to Jorge Sedano of ESPN Los Angeles.



This is the third time Woods has been involved in a car investigation. The most notorious was the early morning after Thanksgiving in 2009, when his SUV ran over a fire hydrant and hit a tree. That was the start of shocking revelations that he had been cheating on his wife with multiple women. Woods lost major corporate sponsorship, went to a rehabilitation clinic in Mississippi and did not return to golf for five months.

In May 2017, Florida police found him asleep behind the wheel of a car parked awkwardly on the side of the road. He was arrested on a DUI charge and said later he had an unexpected reaction to prescription medicine his back pain. Woods later pleaded guilty to reckless driving and checked into a clinic to get help with prescription medication and a sleep disorder.

Commercial building in South LA engulfed in flames, Metro A line affected

SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Raging flames and thick black smoke rose into the sky Tuesday morning as a fire ripped through a one-story commercial building in the Central-Alameda area of South Los Angeles.

Crews responded at 3:39 a.m. to 2700 S. Long Beach Ave., near 24th Street, and found heavy fire coming from the building, according to Nicholas Prange of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The fire was upgraded at 4:30 a.m. from a greater alarm structure fire to a major emergency structure fire, and the 144 firefighters assigned continued a defensive battle against the flames using ladder pipes and large hose lines set up along the perimeter of the building while leaving room for a potential building collapse, Prange said.

There are homes nearby, but there were no immediate reports of evacuations.

AIR7 HD was over the area as the building's roof collapsed.

A knock down was called just before 6 a.m., according to Prange.

Metro A (Blue) Line service between the Vernon and Washington stations was halted because of the fire. Buses would transport passengers between the two stations until further notice, Metro said.

It was not immediately clear what sparked the fire.

No injuries were reported.
