LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities and Tiger Woods' manager say the golf star has suffered leg injuries in a vehicle rollover in the Los Angeles area and is undergoing surgery. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says Woods had to be extricated from the vehicle Tuesday.

No other cars were involved in the wreck that injured the golfer.

Woods was taken to the hospital and his condition isn't clear. The vehicle sustained major damage.

Woods was in Los Angeles over the weekend as the tournament host of the Genesis Invitational at Riviera.

The LA County Sheriffs office issued a statement on their Twitter page saying, "at approximately 7:12 AM LASD responded to a single vehicle roll-over traffic collision on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes."
