We’re starting to learn more about Tiger Woods and the details surrounding the car crash he was involved in Tuesday morning.

Woods was traveling at high speeds before experiencing a serious, single-car rollover crash in Los Angeles, according to Los Angeles Times reporter Shelby Grad. Law enforcement officials also provided Grad with details on Woods, who was hospitalized with non-life-threatening leg injuries.

Here’s the latest from Grad:

Law enforcement sources speaking to The Times on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the matter said Woods was traveling at a high rate of speed and lost control of the vehicle before crossing the center divider. Woods’ SUV rolled multiple times before coming to a halt.

The sources described his condition as “moderate to critical” and said he was removed from the vehicle’s windshield.

The crash occurred on a curvy, steep stretch of Hawthorne Boulevard, a major road that cuts through the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Sheriff’s deputies had the road closed off Tuesday as they investigated.
