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.

Everyone's thoughts and prayers are with the family and shame on those who have said nasty things, it is the holiday and it is a horrible thing to happen. On another note have we ever thought that maybe Tiger is having issues like other greats....i.e. Brett Favre. What I mean by this is not alcohol, but pain killers. Think about it, technically that would be a DUI and as great as Tiger is, anyone who has watched him lately and in the U.S. Open can agree that he is in pain. It is very sad, but that pain is not something that we can all see or know what he is going through, but sometimes things happen and I would think it is very likely in this case. Which is very sad, I hope he is okay because he is one of the original great athletes of our time.

He must have been trying to get some Black Friday bargains...it's awfully dark that time of the morning, I can see how he missed that hydrant. That has been there since his house was built.

Hmmm, alcohol was NOT a factor, but charges are pending?
Can TMZ explain this?
Either way, this is a sucky situation to be in.

The airbags didn't deploy because the car wasn't going fast enough. They didn't fail.

You have to be going about 25 mph to 30 mph for the airbags to deploy so he was not going that fast, but if you think about it trees do not give way, which is the reason that people who are involved in these accidents are hurt so badly.

He is being treated for "facial lacerations." My theory: He got the facial lacerations before leaving the house, and was driving himself to the hospital. Wooziness from whatever (or whoever) gave him the lacerations caused the accident.
