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

According to the department’s Twitter account, the vehicle sustained “major damage” in the accident, which took place at 7:12 a.m. Woods was the only occupant of the car, and was extricated via the jaws of life. He was taken to a nearby hospital. No further information on his condition is currently available.

Woods had been in California for the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club, a tournament hosted by Woods’ foundation. Woods did not play, as he was still recovering from back surgery, but was present to congratulate tournament winner Max Homa. After the tournament, he also played golf with Dwyane Wade
