TMZ has released updates on Tiger Woods following the car crash he was involved in earlier today.
The outlet states that he has sustained multiple leg injuries and is currently in surgery. It is not believed that alcohol or any other substances were involved. They also updated their original statement and said — despite the fact that a statement from the L.A. County Sheriff’s department that said the jaws of life were used to extract him from the vehicle, that the jaws were not used on the professional golfer.

They also give specific details about what transpired before the accident. They said, “Tiger was staying at a hotel where a major network television show was being shot. Production sources tell TMZ, when the director arrived just before 7 AM, Tiger was driving his SUV very fast as he was leaving the property and almost hit the director’s car.”
“The director was shaken enough to tell production staff about it after he parked. A crew member who saw Tiger as he got in his SUV at the hotel tells TMZ, once Tiger got in his vehicle, there was a delay in driving off and he appeared ‘agitated and impatient.’ The crew member says once the delay was over, Tiger ‘took off fast.'”
