Tiger Woods was injured in a collision with a single vehicle in Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles law enforcement.
Woods was injured in a car crash on Tuesday in which fire crews had to use the jaws of life to pull him out of the vehicle.
MSNBC reports that the cause of the crash is currently under investigation.
Woods was in the Los Angeles area to host the Genesis Invitational golf event. He had been in the Los Angeles area for a few extra days on a set of Golf Digest with former NBA star Dwyane Wade and actor and comedian David Spade.
Woods, 45, recently had back surgery, his fifth, after playing at the Masters in November. He was aiming to return to Augusta for the Masters in April, as told this weekend to CBS Sports’ Jim Nantz.
