Tiger Woods in surgery after car crash

American golfer Tiger Woods has undergone surgery on Tuesday after experiencing multiple leg injuries in a car accident, his agent Mark Steinberg revealed.

Woods was "extricated from the wreck with the jaws of life by Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics, then transported to a local hospital by ambulance for his injuries," Los Angeles authorities previously stated. Woods was the only person in the SUV he was driving when he crashed and rolled over with his car.

The authorities added his vehicle suffered "major damage." This isn't the first time Woods has had a car accident, as he crashed another SUV into a fire hydrant in Florida back in 2009.
