Here’s a look at other stars who’ve been involved in major accidents over the years.

Tiger Woods – Car Crash

Tiger Woods was involved in a single-vehicle crash in February 2021. The golf pro’s crash happened on a descent from Rolling Hill Estate just outside Los Angeles.

Woods, 46, suffered multiple leg injuries in the near-fatal crash. According to multiple reports, the athlete was driving too fast when his vehicle pulled into the wrong lane and hit a tree.

In February, Woods gave an update on his recovery during a press conference at the Genesis Invitational. “I wish I could tell you when I’m playing again. I want to know, but I don’t. My golf activity has been very limited,” Woods said. “…I’m still working on the walking part. My foot was a little messed up about a year ago, so the walking part is something I’m still working on. I’m working on strength and development in that area. .”

“It takes time. The frustrating thing is it’s not on my schedule,” Woods continues. “I want to be in a certain place, but I’m not. I just have to keep working. I’m improving, but not at the speed and pace that I would like. You also add the age factor and you don’t heal not as fast, which is frustrating.”

Paul Walker – Car Crash

“Fast & Furious” star Paul Walker died in a car crash in Santa, Clarita in November 2013. Walker was 40 when he was the passenger in the car crash. His good friend, Roger Rodas, was the driver who also died at the scene.

Walker is survived by his daughter, Meadow Walker, who was 15 at the time.

Travis Barker – Plane Crash

Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker was involved in a plane crash in 2008. Barker was on a private jet flying from Columbia, South Carolina, to Los Angeles when the plane crashed .

Barker was accompanied by his assistant, Chris Baker, his security guard and best friend, Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein, as well as two pilots, James Bland and Sarah Lemmon. Barker and Goldstein were the only survivors on the plane.

“I made a deal with her that she just said to me, ‘I would so love to travel with you. I want to go to Italy with you. I want to go to Cabo with you. I want to go to Paris with you. I want to go to Bora Bora with you,'” he said in an interview with Nylon magazine.

“And I said, ‘Well, the day you want to fly, I’m telling you, I’ll do it with you. I would do anything with you. And just give me 24 hours notice. And that’s what she did.”

The couple married in Portofino, Italy in May.

“If you’re in the public eye, what you realize when you’re on the pitch thinking it’s the last minute of your life is that for some people it’s just going to be entertainment for their Facebook page,” he said of people surrounding and recording him immediately after the crash.


“I’m a pretty positive guy, but this told me – clearly – that you’re really here just for their entertainment.”

Tracy Morgan – Car Crash

In June 2014, a Walmart truck rammed comedian Tracy Morgan’s limo on the New Jersey Turnpike.

The crash killed his friend, comedian James McNair, who was 62 at the time. Morgan was in a wheelchair for five months after the accident.

In the past, Morgan has admitted he considered taking his own life after the crash. In a 2016 interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Morgan said, “I thought I was going to die for a long time. I was in a very dark place. I was sitting right here contemplating the suicide. I couldn’t walk.”

After the accident, Morgan was in a coma where he said he “visited the afterlife” and his late father.


“He was the one who said, ‘Go home, son. I’m not ready for you yet,'” Morgan said. “I don’t think I cheated death. I think that was the plan. My room wasn’t ready.”
