The dispatch caller raised the alarm saying there had been a “traffic collision” and “a person is trapped”.
They then said: “Sheriff on scene. Vehicle off the side of the road.”
The dispatch call came in around 7.26am PST today.
The Los Angeles County Sheriffs department confirmed that Woods was the driver of the vehicle involved in the roll-over traffic collision.
Fire crews had to lift him from the car before paramedics rushed him to hospital.
According to the department, the vehicle, a Genesis GV80, sustained “major damage”.
Footage from the scene showed the car on its side with the front of the vehicle crushed.
It appeared to have crashed in a grassy area surrounded by trees, off the main road.
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.”
According to LA sheriffs, Woods was conscious after the crash, which occurred shortly before 7.15am Tuesday, officials said.
A sobriety check was not done as there was no reason to do one, Fox News reports, and he had been driving down hill so speed could have been a factor.
It is believed his condition is not life-threatening.
Woods was in the area today for the Genesis Invitational golf tournament at the Riviera Country Club in the Pacific Palisades before the incident happened.
Earlier this week, he posed for pictures with stars such as David Spade and Dwyane Wade.
He also made his first public appearance just days ago after undergoing back surgery.
Woods provided an update about his condition with CBS during the final round of the Genesis Invitational.
“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 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.”
Today’s incident 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.
Woods lost major corporate sponsorship, went to a rehabilitation clinic in Mississippi and did not return to golf for five months.
