Tiger has leg injuries, in surgery following crash

News

LOS ANGELES — Golf star Tiger Woods was injured Tuesday in a vehicle rollover in Los Angeles County.

“Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries,” his agent Mark Steinberg said. “He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support.”

Woods had to be extricated from the vehicle with the Jaws of Life tools, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

The vehicle sustained major damage, the sheriff’s department said.

A KABC-TV helicopter over the scene of Woods’ accident showed a car on its side with the front end heavily damaged. Air bags appeared to be deployed. The wreckage appeared to be just off the side of a road on a hillside.

Woods, whose first name is Eldrick, was the sole occupant of the vehicle, the sheriff’s department said.

The crash occurred shortly before 7:15 a.m., officials said.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
