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.

Alcohol may not have been involved but it could be some of the chronic.

Best to all.

Story is a little odd. Was pulling out of his driveway going how fast? Having broken my femur...this is not good. Lots of healing time. But if anyone is committed to healing, it's Tiger.

Apparently the Police reports say alcohol was NOT a factor. He could have been tired or avoiding another car or an animal in the road and lost control. He's apparently a good guy and those that know him well say he is fun to be with and a good husband and father. My prayers will be with him and his family.

Why would he leave his house at 2:30am on Thanksgiving? I doubt it was to save $30 on a plasma at walmart.

Get well immediately, Tiger!

A fire hydrant and then a tree and still no airbag deployment? What does it take? An asteroid collision? Cadillac needs to do some product performance reviews.

Golf is one of the greatest games. It's very good spiritual and mind training as well as body coordination training. Golf also needs to be made available everywhere.
