Pro golfer Tiger Woods showed no immediate signs of impairment when responders arrived on the scene of his car crash, deputies said during a press conference Tuesday.

Woods was “conscious” and able to communicate to first responders, Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby told reporters during the press conference.

Osby also clarified that the “Jaws of Life” were not used to remove Woods. The golfer was removed from the vehicle using other tools including an ax, the fire chief said. (RELATED: Jack Nicklaus, Justin Thomas, Sports World React To News Of Tiger Woods’ Car Accident)

Another deputy, who spoke with Woods following his extraction from the vehicle, said during the press conference that Woods was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash and it likely saved his life.

There were reportedly no skid marks on the road where Woods crashed.

Woods’ accident took place early Tuesday morning near the Rancho Pales Verdes neighborhood in Los Angeles, Yahoo! News reported. He sustained non-life threatening injuries and underwent surgery Tuesday, as previously reported.

Rancho Pales Verdes resident Ric Palma told Yahoo! Sports he wasn’t “surprised” an accident took place near the neighborhood.

“It’s unfortunate, but I’m not surprised an accident took place here,” Palma told Yahoo Sports. “Going downhill, it can be dangerous. You can gain speed super fast. There’s no banking on the road either, so if you’re making a right turn and you’re going too fast, it can lead to something bad.”

Firefighters recount rescuing Tiger Woods from car accident

He’s one of the greatest golfers of all time — but to the firefighters who saved his life, he was just another victim who needed their help.

Firefighters who rescued Tiger Woods from his mangled SUV following Tuesday’s single-car crash in California recalled an ax was used to get him out safely — and one noted he was “just another patient.”

Cole Gomoll, a firefighter with Fire Station 106 in Rolling Hills Estates, says he used a 6-pound ax to chop up Woods’ 2021 Genesis SUV, where he saw the famous athlete trapped inside and tangled up in his seatbelt.

Woods was immediately rushed to Harbor UCLA Medical Center, where he underwent surgery for his leg fractures.

The rescue took 12 minutes, and it was initially reported as a traffic collision with a person trapped inside a vehicle.

Firefighters say anyone in Woods’ position would have received the same treatment.

“He’s just another patient,” Gomoll told the Associated Press on Friday.

“His identity really didn’t matter in what we do,” Capt. Jeane Barrett added.

Capt. Joe Peña said he didn’t know who was in the car until a sheriff’s deputy told him.

On Thursday, Woods was transferred from Harbor-UCLA Medical Center to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for “continuing orthopedic care and recovery,” according to hospital officials.

A post on his Twitter account Friday night said he “received follow-up procedures on his injuries this morning. The procedures were successful, and he is now recovering and in good spirits.”
