“He was like, ‘Yeah, you know what? I almost got in an accident with f*cking Tiger Woods. He almost hit me,'” Koneth told the outlet. (RELATED: Tiger Woods ‘Awake’ And ‘Responsive’ Following Surgery After Roll-Over Car Crash, Statement Says)
“I didn’t even believe him, to be honest with you,” Konteh continued. “That’s what we heard. It was early in the morning. Everyone’s kind of tired. Plus, it’s also Tiger Woods, that’s a well known name.”
Woods suffered leg injuries after driving off the road near Rancho Pales Verdes neighborhood in Los Angeles, Yahoo! News reported. He was reportedly on his way to film for a TV show at a nearby country club when he crashed his vehicle.
Deputies claimed Woods was conscious when they arrived on scene and had to be removed from the vehicle using an axe and other tools.
A deputy, who spoke with Woods following his extraction from the vehicle, said during a press conference Tuesday that the golfer was wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash and it likely saved his life.
