The LASD tweeted Woods was driving on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes when the car crashed, sustaining major damage.
They said Woods needed to be pulled from the scene with the “jaws of life” and transported to a local hospital.
Woods’ agent, Mark Steinberg, told Golf Digest that Woods had suffered multiple leg injuries and was currently undergoing surgery.
“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,” he said in a statement.
More to come.
