tiger woods

LOS ANGELES COUNTY, Calif. (WAND) - Authorities said they did not find any immediate evidence of Tiger Woods having any impairment at the time of his Tuesday crash. 

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, responders went to the scene at 7:12 a.m. Tuesday. They said Woods was involved in a single-vehicle rollover crash on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes. 

The Associated Press reports Woods' SUV hit a median, rolled and landed on its side on a steep roadway in suburban Los Angeles. This is an area of road known for having wrecks. 

The vehicle sustained major damage in the crash. 

Los Angeles County firefighters and paramedics used the "jaws of life" to extricate Woods, who was alert and able to communicate, from the vehicle. An ambulance transported him to a local hospital for treatment. 

Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, told Golf Digest the world famous golfer suffered "multiple" leg injuries and needed surgery. 

Authorities said they checked for any odor of alcohol or other signs of Woods being under the influence of any substance. No evidence was found. Officials did not provide any information about Woods' speed at the time of the crash.

Investigators from LASD Lomita Station are looking into what caused the crash.
