You’ve likely heard the news from earlier this morning, but in case you haven’t: Tiger Woods is in the hospital after a serious roll-over car accident in the Los Angeles area. NBC News’ Gadi Schwartz says Woods had to be extricated from his vehicle with the “jaws of life.”
Woods was transported by ambulance to a local hospital. Video from the scene shows what appears to be a cross-over vehicle on its side with major damage. A golf club bag can also be seen in the dirt close to the vehicle. Woods was the only occupant of the vehicle. It happened this morning just after 7 a.m. local time on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, just south of Los Angeles. Tiger’s agent Mark Steinberg said Woods “suffered multiple leg injuries” and he is currently in surgery. Steinberg added “we thank you for your privacy and support.”
