Tiger Woods seriously injured in car crash, ‘lucky to be alive’ as SUV suffers major damage in accident
Tiger Woods has been seriously injured after being involved in a car crash Tuesday morning near Ranchos Palos Verdes, California. He had to be extracted from his sports-utility vehicle as it sustained “major damage” following a single-vehicle rollover traffic crash, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Woods, 45, is currently in surgery for “multiple leg injuries,” agent Mark Steinberg told Golf Digest early Tuesday. He has reportedly suffered two leg fractures (one compound fracture) and a shattered ankle, according to the Los Angeles Times, which is citing a source familiar with Woods’ treatment.
