UPDATE: LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities and Tiger Woods' manager say the golf star has suffered leg injuries in a vehicle rollover in the Los Angeles area and is undergoing surgery. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says Woods had to be extricated from the vehicle Tuesday with the so-called jaws of life tools. No other cars were involved in the wreck that injured the golfer. Woods was taken to the hospital and his condition isn't clear. The vehicle sustained major damage.


NBC-- Golf legend Tiger Woods was seriously injured Tuesday in a one-car accident in Southern California, officials said.

Woods' vehicle was going north on Hawthorne Boulevard at Blackhorse road, on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, when it crashed and sustained "major damage," the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement.

Woods was the driver and only occupant of the vehicle, the statement said.

"Mr. Woods was extracted from the wreck with the 'jaws of life,'" the sheriff added.

He was rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment of his injuries, the statement said.
