Tiger Woods in 'good spirits' after treatment for car crash injuries as firefighters recall cutting SUV with ax

In a statement posted by the team of legendary golfer Tiger Woods, the athlete is in "good spirits" and on his way to recovery post-surgery following what the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department termed a "single-vehicle roll-over traffic collision" on February 23 in Southern California. Woods suffered major injuries that included fractures to his tibia and fibula. A metal rod was inserted in his tibia with screws and pins to stabilize his foot and ankle.

“Tiger has been moved to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center and received follow-up procedures on his injuries this morning. The procedures were successful and he is now recovering and in good spirits,” read a message posted by his Twitter account. “Tiger and his family want to thank you all for the wonderful support and messages they have received over the past few days. We will not have any further updates at this time.”
