    Default Tiger Woods in surgery after suffering injury in 1-car rollover accident

    Tiger Woods was injured Tuesday morning in what the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department termed a "single vehicle roll-over traffic collision."
    According to the department's Twitter account, the vehicle sustained "major damage" in the accident, which took place at 7:12 a.m. Woods was the only occupant of the car, and was extricated via the Jaws of Life. He was taken to nearby Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.


    A local news station showed footage of Woods' wrecked vehicle, still bearing the logo of the Genesis Invitational, the tournament hosted by his foundation last weekend:


    Below is a wider view of the crash scene:

    (Via screenshot)

    Woods' car was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard in Rolling Hills Estates, heading downhill in the residential area. His car apparently crossed the southbound lanes and traveled a substantial distance before coming to rest:


    ABC 7 in Los Angeles reported that Woods was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, less than 10 miles away from the crash site.
    Woods' agent Mark Steinberg released a statement shortly before noon in Los Angeles confirming the news: "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."
    Woods had been in California for the Genesis Invitational, which took place at Riviera Country Club. Woods did not play, as he was still recovering from back surgery, but was present to congratulate tournament winner Max Homa. After the tournament, he also played golf with Dwyane Wade.
    This is a breaking story and will be updated.

    Default Tiger Woods in one-vehicle rollover accident, in surgery for leg injuries

    Watching coverage on MSNBC, they say vehicle rolled over several times and he had to be extracted with jaws of life. He was alone in vehicle, unnamed law enforcement say traveling at a high rate of speed. Several leg injuries and in surgery now.

    Does this guy have a death wish or what? I think it's safe to say his career is now over. With all the back injuries/surgeries and now this.

    Recovering from back surgery makes me think pain pills. Could have been purely an accident, but with this guy's prescription drug and DUI history, I remain skeptical.

    This is pretty much all that’s on the local news here since late morning/lunch time.

    I hope he wasn't drinking or under the influence. I have a soft spot for Tiger.

    We have relatives that live up there. In RPV. This road is insane.

    Lots of rich guys and their expensive toys go speeding through there.

    Some poor CNN anchor is getting raked over the coals for saying he is not surprised. "How dare you besmirch the memory of Saint Tiger!!!!"

    Did he even brake? I don't see any marks on the road in the overhead shots.
