Golf legend Tiger Woods can't remember the car accident that left him with "serious" injuries to his right leg and was oblivious to how badly injured he was according to police.

Woods is still recovering in hospital after undergoing surgery for compound fractures to his leg, but he reportedly still has no recollection of the incident.

"At the hospital, he was asked about it by the investigators and he had no recollection of the crash itself," LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told CNN.

Another official, Sheriff's Deputy Carlos Gonzalez, who arrived first at the scene, told NBC on Wednesday that Woods had no idea just how serious his condition was when officers made the first contact with him.

"I don't think he was aware of how gravely he was injured at the time. It could be a mixture of adrenaline, it could've been shock," Gonzalez said.

"Again it was very quick, the moment that I arrived from the moment that he rolled over, so I don't know if he had time to fully assess his injuries," added Gonzalez.

The officer, who arrived six minutes after a 911 call was made, said the 45-year-old was surprisingly calm when officials spoke to him and eventually decided to call the fire crew to cut him out of the damaged car.

"I've seen collisions that didn't look as serious where the occupants were injured much more severely," he said. "I think that's just a testament to the fact that he was wearing a seatbelt, airbags worked as intended and modern vehicles are much safer than they ever used to be."

The body camera worn by Gonzalez is set to be released within the coming days according to USA Today.
