Tiger Woods

Injured in Car Crash

11/27/2009 1:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Car Crash
UPDATE
-- According to Tiger's rep, he was in a "minor" accident, "admitted, treated and released today in good condition."

Tiger Woods
is in "serious" condition after being involved in a single car crash near his home in Florida early this morning.

The crash occurred at 2:20 AM in Windermere. He was taken to Health Central Hospital with facial lacerations.

Woods struck a fire hydrant and then a tree on a neighbor's property. The fire hydrant is reportedly less than 100 feet from his driveway.

Police say alcohol was not a factor. There were no signs of alcohol on the scene. We're told the police have yet to speak to Tiger.

The police report reads, "DRIVER HAD JUST PULLED OUT OF THE DRIVEWAY AT HIS RESIDENCE ... AS V1 BEGAN TO DRIVE ON DEACON CIRCLE, V1 STRUCK A FIRE HYDRANT. THE FRONT OF V1 THEN STRUCK A TREE ... THE DRIVER WAS TRANSPORTED TO HEALTH CENTRAL HOSPITAL. THE CRASH REMAINS UNDER INVESTIGATION AND CHARGES ARE PENDING."

We're told charges could range from DUI to reckless driving ... to nothing.

He was driving a 2009 Cadillac SUV. FHP says the airbags did not deploy.

Woods was by himself at the time.

His next scheduled event is December 3 in Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Just yesterday I read he was having an affair with Rachel Uchitel. She is the gal who was sleeping with the guy from Bones. And now I'm reading he was drinking and driving. If you have followed him the past 6 months or so it is obvious something is not right. And now, I guess we know.

He backs out of his own driveway at 2.20 am, backs into a fire hydrant, then smashes into a neighbors tree, charges are pending, but there's no alcohol involved. Rrrriighttt!
Oh, and it's not reported until 2;30 the next day. Smells of a cover up to me.

Suspicious timing after rumours about him having an affair were floating around right before Thanksgiving. Family fight? Hitting the bong? (take a look at Drudge's headline picture)

talk about poor comprehension. Single car accident means 1 car not 1 person.


11. People, the headline reads (single car crash) do you know what that means? Read before you post.
