Deputies say Woods had to be extricated from the wreck with the "jaws of life" by Los Angeles firefighters and paramedics, then was taken to a local hospital for his injuries. 

NBC News is reporting officials say he was rushed into surgery and treated for a compound fracture in at least one leg. 

The traffic investigation is being conducted by investigators from LASD Lomita Station.
