Golf star Tiger Woods suffered leg injuries Tuesday (23 FEB. 2021) in a vehicle rollover in suburban Los Angeles and was undergoing surgery, authorities and his manager said.
The wrecked SUV was towed Tuesday afternoon as media gathered at the crash site.
Woods was alone in the vehicle and had to be extricated from it, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement. No other cars were involved in the wreck that injured the golfer.
The vehicle sustained major damage, and Woods was taken to the hospital by ambulance, authorities said.
“Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries,” said his manager, Mark Steinberg. “He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support.”
