Los Angeles (CBSLA / AP) – According to authorities and his manager, golf star Tiger Woods had a leg injury and surgery on Tuesday in a vehicle rollover in the Rancho Palos Verdes area.

According to a LASD statement, a crash was reported shortly after 7 am when a sheriff responded to a single vehicle rollover accident at the border between Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes.

Sheriffs say the car was heading north on Hawthorne Boulevard on Black Horse Road when the car crashed and suffered “great damage.”

According to sheriffs, the driver (later identified as Eldrick “Tiger” Woods) was released from the vehicle with a “jaw of life” and transferred to the Harbor UCLA Medical Center.

Lieutenant Michael White later said that CBSLA’s report on the “jaw of life” used was inaccurate.

Los Angeles County Fire Department spokesman Christopher Thomas said there was a second collision when a vehicle that apparently stopped to help Woods collided. The wreckage was very minor and no one was injured.

Woods agent Marc Steinberg issued the statement on Tuesday morning. “Tiger Woods suffered multiple leg injuries in a car accident in California this morning. He is currently undergoing surgery. Thank you for your privacy and support.”

Jim Hill, CBSLA Sports Director, says 15 major champions had filmed a documentary of a golf digest with Dwyane Wade and David Spade on 82 career PGA tours before the crash on Tuesday.

Earlier on Tuesday, Spade posted a photo on social media and thanked Woods for his golf lesson.

“Golf lessons with this guy today. And what do you know? He’s not bad … he picks things up very quickly. A good listener,” Spade wrote.

Woods is recovering from a fifth discectomy on his back, hoping to play professionally later this year.

The PGA has issued the following statement: “Today I noticed a car accident at Tiger Woods. When he finishes his surgery, we are waiting for more information. On behalf of the PGA Tour and players, Tiger is in our prayers, You will get our full support as he recovers. “

This is the third time Woods has been involved in a car survey. The most notorious was in the early morning after Thanksgiving in 2009, when his SUV ran over a fire hydrant and hit a tree. It was the beginning of a shocking revelation that he was fooling multiple women and his wife. Woods lost a major corporate sponsor, went to a rehab clinic in Mississippi, and didn’t return to golf for five months.
