El legendario golfista Tiger Woods estuvo involucrado el martes en un peligroso accidente de tráfico en el condado de Los Ángeles.
El estadounidense, de 45 años, sufrió múltiples lesiones en las piernas según su agente. El personal de rescate tuvo que asistirlo para sacarlo de su vehículo. Una fuente policial dijo que no se cree que las lesiones del golfista pongan en peligro su vida. No obstante, su carrera podría sufrir un duro golpe.
Considerado uno de los mejores de todos los tiempos, Woods había estado recuperándose de una operación de espalda a finales del pasado año y tendría que volver al quirófano nuevamente tras su percance.
Un sinnúmero de personalidades del deporte y celebridades se unieron para desear pronta recuperación a Woods a través de las redes sociales:
