LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Golfer Tiger Woods was hospitalized on Tuesday after being involved in a single-vehicle accident in Los Angeles, police said. The vehicle sustained major damage and Woods was extricated from the wreck with the "jaws of life" by firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

During a recent speech on the House floor, North Carolina GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn had some choice words for the nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony Fauci, and called for a "formal commission" to investigate him.
"Madam Speaker, today I am calling for the creation of a formal commission to investigate the true origin of COVID-19, the role Fauci played in its creation, the false statements he made to members of Congress under oath, and they the hell Americans are funding the torture of puppies in Africa," Cawthorn said.
In regards to the puppies, Cawthorn is referring to allegations that Fauci's National Institutes of Health (NIH) division funded a lab in Tunisia that conducted science experiments that allegedly mistreated dozens of beagle puppies.
"Americans deserve the truth, and this demon doctor must never be allowed to escape justice," he added.

A defense attorney representing MAGA rioter Thomas Sibick on Tuesday warned that a group of jailed January 6th defendants are becoming "cult-like" after being imprisoned together in the same wing in a Washington D.C. jail.
As reported by NBC 4 Washington's Scott MacFarlane, Sibick's lawyer claimed in court that the jailed MAGA rioters have all developed rituals in which they all sing "The Star Spangled Banner" together at 9 p.m. every night.
The attorney then said that the environment has grown so "toxic" that Sibick preferred to be held in solitary confinement rather than be exposed to it.
Toward the end of the hearing, Judge Amy Berman Jackson said that reports of the "toxic environment" in the prison raise "serious serious questions" about whether jailed MAGA rioters should be held together ahead of their trials.
Vice News last week first reported on the so-called "Patriot Wing" of the D.C. jail, and the publication spoke with an extremism expert who similarly argued that it was unwise to keep all the defendants in the same place.
"I do think the fact that the J6 defendants who are currently being held pre-trial... having them all together where they can seemingly communicate by newsletter, is likely to foster continued feelings of anti-government mentality among those individuals who are being prosecuted," Jonathan Lewis, a research fellow at the George Washington University's Program on Extremism, explained.
Newsmax talking head Eric Bolling -- fired from Fox News in 2017 amid sexual harassment allegations -- continues to find sport in attacking his former employer for serving as a secret bastion of liberalism.
Bolling targeted veteran Fox News commentator Chris Wallace Monday night for lacking proper right-wing credentials. The bosses at Newsmax enjoyed it enough to feature the comments on their website:
"Bolling called Fox's Chris Wallace a "leftist excuse for bipartisanship" and showed a clip of the host moderating a presidential debate last year when he admonished then-President Donald Trump for interrupting then-candidate Joe Biden," Newsmax reported.
"Wallace recently said Biden White House spokesperson Jen Psaki "is one of the best press secretaries ever."
"The best? Really, Chris?" Bolling said. "You've been working in news since the '70s and she's the best? Really makes me wonder what you've been paying attention to all these years."
It's not the first time Bolling has pleased his present employer by savaging his previous one. But he does have some new material. Here's more from his Newsmax rant:
"Think about what Fox is doing, though. It's brilliant. Everything they truly believe is aired in the middle of the day when everybody is at work. Then they get home from work and watch evening commentary hosts say the complete opposite of what they reported just hours prior.
Bolling has also added an attack on Fox News' vaccine hypocrisy to his repertoire:
"Fox hosts rage against the vaccine mandates, yet they work for a company that demands their employees get vaccinated or get tested," he said.
