Tiger Woods has been taken to hospital after he was seriously injured in a single-vehicle roll-over traffic collision earlier this morning in Los Angeles.
The 45-year-old pro golfer’s vehicle sustained major damage, with paramedics needing the jaws of life to remove him, according to a media release by LA County Sheriff’s Department.
In a statement to Daniel Rapaport of Golf Digest, Woods' agent Mark Steinberg said the 45-year-old "suffered multiple leg injuries."
"Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries," Steinberg said. "He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support."
Woods was in the area for a two-day content shoot with Golf Digest/GOLFTV after serving as host for the PGA Tour's Genesis Invitational over the weekend.
It's not the first time Woods has been in a high-profile car accident. In 2009, he crashed his SUV in an incident at his home in Florida.
