According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, US golfer Tiger Woods was hospitalized on Tuesday after a car accident in which his car was “severely damaged.”
Woods, the only resident, was removed from the wreckage by firefighters and paramedics and suffered from “multiple leg injuries,” his agent said in a statement to the US media.
“He is currently undergoing surgery. Thank you for your privacy and support,” said Marc Steinberg.
Woods was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
No other vehicle was involved in the fall accident near Los Angeles. Television images showed that the car was lying on a grassland off the road and the hood was badly damaged.
Woods, one of the most successful golfers in history, has won 15 major golf championships.
He recently had his fifth back surgery and said he wasn’t sure he could play in the next Masters, which was his last victory in 2019.
According to celebrity website TMZ, 45-year-old Woods was in the area for the annual Genesis Invitational Golf Tournament at the Riviera Country Club.
