Golfer Tiger Woods was brought to a hospital in Los Angeles on Tuesday after suffering multiple leg injuries when he figured in a car crash, local authorities said.

In a statement, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Woods, 45, was the single occupant of a sport utility vehicle when it went off a road and rolled down a steep hillside at about 7:12 a.m.

The car crash occurred near the suburban communities of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, it added.

The incident required the “jaws of life,” which refers to tools used to pry open vehicles involved in accidents, to extricate Woods.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Woods was conscious during the extrication and that his injuries were not believed to be life threatening.

Woods is currently in surgery, according to his agent, Mark Steinberg.

Woods is considered one of the greatest athletes in golf history, winning 15 major championship titles since 1997.
