(Rancho Palos Verdes, CA) -- Tiger Woods' agent is detailing the golfer's injuries after he was involved in a major car accident. Agent Mark Steinberg said Woods "suffered multiple leg injuries" and he is currently in surgery. Steinberg added "we thank you for your privacy and support." Woods was in the rollover crash in the Los Angeles area this morning. The L.A. County Sheriff's Department said Woods had to be extricated from his vehicle with the "jaws of life."

Video from the scene shows what appears to be a cross-over vehicle on its side with major damage. A golf club bag can also be seen in the dirt close to the vehicle. Woods was the only occupant of the vehicle. It happened this morning just after 7 a.m. local time on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, just south of Los Angeles. Woods was in the state to do a content shoot. This is after he was a host for a tournament last weekend.
