Legendary golfer Tiger Woods was involved in a single-car vehicle rollover in Los Angeles County early Tuesday morning, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. Woods, 45 suffered multiple leg injuries according to his agent and rescue personnel had to extricate him from the windshield of his vehicle with the Jaws of Life. A police source said that Woods’ injuries are not thought to be life-threatening. Woods, who had been rehabbing from a Dec. 23 back procedure, was in surgery as of Tuesday afternoon.
People from around the sports world and beyond came together to wish for Woods’ recovery on social media.
