Lucky to be alive, Woods faces difficult recovery
A crane is used to lift a vehicle following a rollover accident involving golfer Tiger Woods, Tuesday, Feb. 23, 2021, in the Rancho Palos Verdes suburb of Los Angeles.

Justin King, a personal injury attorney in California, said that if investigators prove the road is unsafe and contributed to Woods’ crash and others, the municipality that controls it could be held liable.

He was in Los Angeles over the weekend as the tournament host of the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club.
