Tiger Woods in surgery after suffering leg injuries in major rollover car crash
Golf superstar Tiger Woods was in surgery Tuesday after suffering multiple leg injuries when an SUV he was driving crashed and rolled over in Los Angeles, authorities and his agent said.
Woods, who was the only person in the vehicle, was “extricated from the wreck with the ‘jaws of life’ by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries,” that county’s sherriff’s department said in a tweet.
Officials said “the vehicle sustained major damage.”
Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg told Golf Digest in a statement: “Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries.”
“He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support,” Steinberg said.
