Tiger Woods was involved in a car accident Tuesday morning in southern California which required him to be extricated with the “jaws of life,” according to a statement from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Woods was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard when he crashed his care in a single vehicle roll-over traffic collision.

His vehicle sustained major damage and Woods was transported to a local hospital for his injuries.

Woods' agent Mark Steinberg per Daniel Rapaport: "Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support."

According to CBSN LA, Woods' injuries are "non life-threatening."

MSNBC also had footage of the car after the wreck.

Golf Digest reported that the 45-year-old was in California for a two-day content shoot with the publication after serving as host of the PGA Tour’s Genesis Invitational over the weekend.

Pictures on social media showed Woods at Rolling Hills Country Club on Monday with Dwayne Wade and David Spade.
