Tiger Woods is undergoing surgery after sustaining ‘multiple leg injuries’ in a serious car accident in Los Angeles on Tuesday morning while he was driving alone to a golf course, according to the Daily Mail.
The 45-year-old golfer was driving alone near Rancho Palos Verdes when his Genesis GV80 flipped over at 7.12am.
Firefighters had to use a device known as the ‘jaws of life’ to break open the car and rescue him.
He was then taken to an unspecified L.A. hospital shortly after the crash, according to his agent, Mark Steinberg.
“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,” Steinberg said.
