Newser — Rob Quinn

Tiger Woods had to be "extricated from the wreck" with the "jaws of life" after a serious car crash in California Tuesday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office says.

The injured golfer was hospitalized after the "single-vehicle rollover collision" on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes around 7am local time, the sheriff's office tweeted.

The 45-year-old's agent tells TMZ that Woods sustained multiple leg injuries and is in surgery. Police say Woods was the only person in the SUV, CNBC reports.
