It’s not the first time Tiger Woods has been in a high-profile car accident — he crashed his SUV in a 2009 incident at his home in Florida.
In 2017, he was arrested after cops found him passed out behind the wheel of his car. Tiger said he had taken prescription medication before the accident and didn’t realize the effect the meds would have on him.
