Tiger Woods is lucky to be alive, but in for a long recovery.

On Tuesday afternoon, we al got the shocking news that Tiger Woods had been in a serious car accident in California and the jaws of life were used to extract him from the crash.

The LA County Sheriffs office has since confirmed the accident, saying it was a rollover accident.

Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg:

“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.”

An L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. source told TMZ Sports they do not believe alcohol was involved but they did not say whether any other substance was possibly involved.

Just horrific luck for a man who was coming off a back injury in December.

“I’m feeling fine, I’m feeling fine. I’m a little bit stiff. I have one more MRI scheduled,” Woods said. “Still in the gym, still doing the mundane stuff that you have to do for rehab, the little things, before I can start gravitating to something more.”

Thoughts are with Woods and his friends and family.
