Golf champion Tiger Woods has undergone leg surgery after a serious crash in a Los Angeles suburb.
Woods has crush injuries in both lower legs as well as a compound fracture and a shattered ankle.
He was taken to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center on Tuesday local time after being freed from the wreckage by a rescue crew.
The LA County Sheriff’s Department said in a news conference that Woods was alone in a Genesis SUV when it crashed into a raised median… crossed two oncoming lanes and rolled multiple times down a steep hillside.
Woods was wearing a seat belt and the airbags deployed… which likely saved his life.
He was alert enough to communicate as firefighters pried open the front windshield to take him out.
LA county sheriff Alex Villanueva said there were no skid marks or indications of braking… and the section of road is a trouble spot for speeding and accidents.
There was no evidence of Woods being under the influence of any substance or alcohol.
