The accident happened Monday on Interstate 70, where it cuts through the scenic Glenwood Canyon in western Colorado. The stretch of road has steep cliffs on either side.

In a series of tweets, Woods said another person driving over 75 mph spun out and that he hit a wall along the highway to avoid that driver.

Woods said that after hitting the wall on the other side of the road, he slid backward going 60 mph. He said a guardrail kept his Jeep Grand Cherokee from dropping 100 feet to the Colorado River below.

Woods praised the police, firefighters, tow truck drivers and everyone else who helped him. He also apologized for rambling and said he had a "little concussion."

On Tuesday, Woods said he was back on the road again.

Rockies, guy doing 75+ in an ice storm spun out. I hit right wall to avoid him, spun 180, hit left wall sliding backwards going 60 mph.
