According to reports, Woods is being treated compound fracture and a shattered ankle.
The golf star wore a seat belt which helped him survive, a sheriff's deputy at the scene said during a press conference on Tuesday afternoon.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the front end and bumper of Woods' vehicle were "totally destroyed."
“The interior was more or less intact, which gave him the cushion to survive, otherwise it would have been a fatal crash," Villanueva said.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirmed that Woods was the driver of a vehicle involved in a roll-over traffic collision just after 7am local time.
According to a 911 dispatch call, obtained by The Sun, Woods was trapped in the vehicle which was "off the side of the road."
Footage from the scene showed a car on it's side with the front of the vehicle crushed.
It appeared Tiger was driving a Genesis GV80, a car being promoted by the golf tournament he was playing in at the weekend.
It appeared to have crashed in a grassy area, not on a road and , according to KABC, the air bags appeared to be deployed.26The Sheriff's Department said that 'major damage' was done to the vehicleCredit: AFP or licensors 26Woods was the only person in the car at the timeCredit: AP:Associated Press 26The vehicle was not on the road 26Earlier this week Woods posed for pictures with David SpadeCredit: Twitter 26He was also pictured with Dwayne WadeCredit: Twitter
Cops speaking on Fox News said that deputies arrived at the scene within six minutes and found the vehicle overturned in shrubs.
The spokesperson also believed that a resident heard the collision and alerted the police.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Fire Department told AJC that a second crash took place when a vehicle apparently stopped to help Woods.
However, the incident was reportedly very minor and no one was hurt.
The star's agent, Mark Steinberg, said in a statement: "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."

Woods was in the area for the Genesis Invitational golf tournament at the Riviera Country Club in the Pacific Palisades before the incident happened.
Earlier on this week, he posed for pictures with stars such as David Spade and Dwyane Wade.
Spade uploaded the photograph onto Twitter, with the caption: "Golf lesson with this guy today. And you know what? He’s not bad… He picks things up very quickly. Good listener."
He also made his first public appearance on Sunday after undergoing back surgery in January.
The star underwent a procedure called a microdiscectomy, which was his fifth back surgery, to remove a pressurized disc fragment that was pinching a nerve.

"I'm feeling fine, little bit stiff," Woods said. "Have one more MRI scheduled to see if the annulus has scarred over finally, and then I can start doing more activities.
"Still in the gym, still doing the mundane stuff that you have to do for rehab, the little things before you can start gravitating towards something a little more."
When being asked what he has done golf-wise since undergoing the major surgery, Woods joked "I've lengthened my putter."
"I don't have to bend over as far. I've gone to the same length as my sand wedge."26Officers were standing by the vehicleCredit: AP:Associated Press

The sporting icon's ex-girlfriend, Lindsey Vonn, tweeted: "Praying for TW right now."
Donald Trump's adviser, Jason Miller, revealed the former president made the following statement: "Get well soon, Tiger. You are a true champion!"
Alex Rodriguez, a former American baseball player best known as also known as A-Rod, also took to Twitter after news broke about Woods' accident.
He tweeted: "Praying for my brother @TigerWoods as we all anxiously await more news. Thinking of him and his entire family."
Speaking just minutes before a press conference, American professional golfer Justin Thomas said he was "sick to his stomach" after learning about the crash.26The star is suffering with multiple leg injuriesCredit: Getty Images - Getty 26Wood was in a car accident back in 2009Credit: Reuters 26Damage of Tiger Woods' Cadillac Escalade's rear window from his single car accident is seen in 2009Credit: Reuters
"It hurts to see one of my closest friends get in an accident and I just hope he's alright," Thomas told reporters. "I'm just worried for his kids, you know. I'm sure they're struggling."
Woods' ex-lovers Rachel Uchitel and Lindsey Vonn expressed concern over his accident.
Uchitel, one of Woods' alleged mistresses, said she was "shaken up" and really worried because "he’s already had trouble with his body up until this point."
Vonn, who dated Woods for nearly three years until they mutually broke up in 2015, tweeted, "Praying for TW right now."
This is the third time Woods has been involved in a car investigation.
The most notorious was the early morning after Thanksgiving in 2009, when his SUV ran over a fire hydrant and hit a tree.

Heartbroken Jason Sudeikis not ready for serious romance with new girlfriend
More On: jason sudeikis Bill Murray, Jason Sudeikis and Jeff Daniels dress down for 2021 Golden Globes Jason Sudeikis seeing British model Keeley Hazell after Olivia Wilde split Olivia Wilde moves bags from Jason Sudeikis’ home to Harry Styles’ place Harry Styles and Jason Sudeikis could be poised for an awkward run-in
Jason Sudeikis “is still heartbroken” over his ex Olivia Wilde’s relationship with Harry Styles and isn’t living with his new girlfriend Keeley Hazell in London, despite online speculation.
Fans of the “Ted Lasso” star began buzzing that his Golden Globes acceptance speech on Sunday appeared to be from the same home where British model Keeley Hazell recently posted a photo.
Observers noticed what looked like an identical incense burner placed on a similar white fireplace mantel in the background as Sudeikis gave his now-infamous rambling acceptance speech for his Golden Globe for best comedy actor for the Apple+ show.
But a source close to the 45-year-old former “Saturday Night Live” star said, “Jason has not moved in with Keeley. He remains still heartbroken over Olivia and isn’t yet ready for another serious relationship.”
The source said while he is spending time with Keeley, an actress who originally shot to fame as part of UK newspaper The Sun’s famous Page 3 franchise, Sudeikis remains firmly focused on his two kids with Wilde, 6-year-old Otis and 4-year-old Daisy.
The source added, “Jason is very much living with his children, they have been with him the whole time while she was filming [“Don’t Worry Darling,” which stars Styles] and gallivanting with Harry [in LA].”
Wilde, 36, was recently seen visiting Sudeikis’ home in South-West London to spend time with the kids after she jetted across the Pond with British-born Styles, 27.
It was reported that Sudeikis and Wilde — who has called her kids “my everythings” on Instagram — are forming a family quarantine bubble in London to co-parent together.
Sudeikis began hanging out with the former Page 3 model in February.
Reps for Sudeikis and Wilde didn’t respond to requests for comment.Filed under celebrity couples , celebrity dating , celebrity relationships , harry styles , jason sudeikis , olivia wilde , 3/4/21
