Tuesday morning, Tiger Woods was involved in a serious car wreck that required fire crews to use the jaws of life to get him out.

“Law enforcement sources say Tiger Woods was traveling at a high rate of speed and lost control of the vehicle. The car rolled several times,” the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday.

The coverage on the wreck continues even now, however, one reporter from CNN took took some time to speculate on what caused the accident in a very disgusting way.

CNN sports anchor Andy Scholes said he was “not surprised” by what happened because “painkillers have become a part of his life.”

Woods just underwent his fifth back surgery and was in the midst of recovering for a potential run at the Masters in April.

Woods’ longtime agent, Mark Steinberg, released a statement following the crash.

“Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries,” Steinberg said in the statement. “He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support.”

Deputy Carlos Gonzalez says Tiger was lucid and could speak at the crash scene — and did not appear to be under the influence of either alcohol or any other substance.
