Los Angeles (CBSLA) – According to officials, golfer Tiger Woods was hospitalized after a car crashed in the Rancho Palos Verdes district on Tuesday.
According to a LASD statement, a crash was reported shortly after 7 am when a sheriff responded to a single vehicle rollover accident at the border between Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes.
Sheriffs say the car was heading north on Hawthorne Boulevard on Black Horse Road when the car crashed and suffered “great damage.”
The driver, later identified as Woods, had to be released from the vehicle with a “jaw of life” and was subsequently taken to the hospital with an unspecified injury.
Woods agent Marc Steinberg issued the statement on Tuesday morning. “Tiger Woods suffered multiple leg injuries in a car accident in California this morning. He is currently undergoing surgery. Thank you for your privacy and support.”
It’s not clear what the 15 major champions, who won the PGA Tour 82 times, were doing before the crash, but actor David Spade posted a photo on social media and thanked Woods for his golf lessons.
