Tiger Woods injured in car accident, authorities say

From CNN's Stella Chan

Tiger Woods was injured in a “single vehicle roll-over” traffic collision, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement Tuesday. 

Woods’ vehicle rolled over this morning on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes. The sheriff's department said his vehicle was traveling northbound on Hawthorne Boulevard at Blackhorse Road when it crashed. 

Woods was transported to a local hospital for his injuries.

The investigation into the accident is ongoing.

Correction: The LA County officials initially said that Woods was cut from his vehicle using the Jaws of Life. They have since said that is not the case. This story has been updated to reflect that.
