Tiger Woods was alive and conscious when first responders rushed to the scene of a single-vehicle rollover crash Tuesday morning, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said.

Villanueva said that Woods was driving at a "relatively greater speed than normal" when he crashed in a hilly area and that Woods was driving northbound when he hit a center divider and flew several hundred feet. He added that there was no evidence of impairment when emergency personnel arrived.

"[The vehicle] crossed the center divider, to the point that it rested several hundred feet away so obviously that indicates they were going at a relatively -- a greater speed than normal. However, because it is downhill, it slopes and it also curves," he said. "That area has a high frequency of accidents. It’s not uncommon."
