Celebrity golfer Tiger Woods underwent surgery after he was injured during a traffic accident Tuesday morning in Los Angeles, according to his agent.
Woods “suffered multiple leg injuries,” his agent, Mark Steinberg, said in a statement to NPR.
This is the third time Tiger Woods has been involved in a notable car accident. He was arrested in 2017 after authorities found him passed out in his car after an accident.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the front end and bumper of Woods’ vehicle were “totally destroyed.”
“The interior was more or less intact, which gave him the cushion to survive, otherwise it would have been a fatal crash,” he said.
Woods was conscious but “he was not able to get up, no, that was not an option,” Villanueva added.
Los Angeles County Fire Department Chief Daryl Osby said a pry bar and ax were used to extract Woods from the vehicle.
