The airbags were deployed at some point during the incident and Woods was removed through the windshield when authorities arrived on the scene.
Tiger Woods agent Mark Steinberg has released a statement about the crash:
“Tiger Woods was in a single-car accident this morning in California where he suffered multiple leg injuries. He is currently in surgery and we thank you for your privacy and support.”

Multiple compound fractures could mean an end to Tiger Woods’ golf career, a though surely on his mind as he stabilizes.
