“He is currently in surgery,” Steinberg said, “and we thank you for your privacy and support.”
Woods, 45, was the only occupant of a vehicle involved in a roll-over accident about 7:15 a.m. PT Tuesday on the border of Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said on Twitter. He was removed from the vehicle with the “jaws of life,” the Sheriff’s Office said.
