RANCHO PALOS VERDES (KABC) -- Tiger Woods suffered multiple leg injuries and was undergoing surgery following a vehicle rollover crash in the Rancho Palos Verdes area early Tuesday, his manager confirmed.

The vehicle Woods was driving was a silver Hyundai Genesis SUV with a logo of the Genesis Invitational on the side.

The SUV is the newest Genesis model, the GV80. It is a mid-size luxury crossover SUV aimed with a base price ranging from $49,925 to $60,175. Two engines are available, including a smooth twin-turbo 3.5 liter V6 making 375 horsepower. The GV80's styling is distinctive, the interior is both plush and modern, and the SUV sits on a sophisticated rear-wheel drive platform. Upscale buyers often consider rear-wheel drive a plus, even if they're not exactly sure why.

After golf star Tiger Woods suffered leg injuries in a vehicle rollover in suburban Los Angeles and was rushed into surgery, sheriff's lieutenant spoke with ABC7 about the investigation into the crash.



AIR7 HD was over the scene of the accident, showing the car on its side with the front end heavily damaged. Air bags appeared to be deployed, and luggage was also seen nearby.

The sheriff's deputy who was first on scene Tuesday morning said he has responded to many crashes in that area, including some that were fatal. The speed limit is 45 mph, but he said he has clocked other vehicles going 80.

No other cars were involved in the wreck that injured Woods. The golf star was the only person in the SUV, which sustained major damage, and he was extricated from the wreck by L.A. County firefighters and paramedics. He was taken to a hospital in serious but stable condition.
