Tiger Woods suffers leg injuries after California car crash

AP

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say Tiger Woods has been seriously injured when his SUV crashed into a median and rolled over several times on a steep road in suburban Los Angeles.

His agent said the golf superstar underwent leg surgery Tuesday.

At a news conference, the Los Angeles County police chief and fire chief said Woods was alert and able to communicate as firefighters pried open the front windshield to get him out.

They say there wasn’t evidence that Woods was impaired.

The crash happened on a sweeping, downhill stretch of road.

The first deputy to arrive says he sometimes catches people topping 80 mph in the 45 mph zone and crashes are common.
