Golf star Tiger Woods suffered leg injuries Tuesday in a vehicle rollover in the Los Angeles area and is undergoing surgery, authorities and his manager said.
Woods had to be extricated from the vehicle with the “jaws of life” tools and had to be hospitalized, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.
Woods, the sole occupant, was removed from the wreckage by firefighters and paramedics and taken to a local hospital for treatment.
The extent of his injuries was not known. The roll-over collision near Los Angeles did not involve any other vehicles.
