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.

This is interesting:

"The National Enquirer reports that Uchitel has been sleeping with Tiger Woods. A friend of Rachel's supposedly told the unreliable tabloid:

"Rachel told me, ‘I’m having an affair with Tiger Woods. We’re in love!’ She even read me text messages Tiger sent her that said ‘I love you, babe. It’s always going to be just you and me. They were constantly sexting."

Tiger's lawyer denies the charges, but does actually tell the Enquirer's print edition that his client met Uchitel at a club."

Maybe this explains why Tiger was leaving at 2:30 am. A nookie run?

The air bag normally only deploy in a frontal impact. They do not go off if rear ended or side impact. Depending on the maker 30 to 35 is the speed needed to make them go off in a front end crash.

Also 99.999% of hospitals are not going to play the fake name I am cool game. They do and will not say anything to the media because of hipaa. So unless he signed a wavier they will not talk.

Its Doctors they played the fake name game before hipaa was a law. now almost all of them do not play that game anymore unless you pay them more than MJ heh..

Alcohol might not have been involved, but I wouldn't rule out drugs at all. Do we know if a blood sample was taken for toxicology report? One might be done at the hospital, anyway.

The dude obviously wasn't wearing his seatbelt or say WAY too close to the steering wheel. What an idiot... I've done my share of Driving While Wasted, but I always buckled up and never ever had any trouble avoiding the fire hydrants and trees that randomly jump into the roadway!

How does the highway patrol know alcohol was not a factor? Did they test his blood at the scene?

He should sue the city for putting a fire hydrate and tree in his path. It must have been those white folk.

27. MSNBC said ahcohol was not a factor. Lets see leaving home at 2:25 am . Hitting a fire hydrant, then a tree and in serious condition. Wow must of been a lot of snow in Florida last night. Gotta love MSNBC THE obama network

--------------------------------------------------------------

MSNBC didn't say alcohol was not a factor, the police said that. MSNBC (and, everyone else) are just reporting on the information that was released. They all reported the same thing. So, relax, you stupid, Republican, paranoid, lying retard. I'm PRETTY sure that there's no "MSNBC/Obama consipracy" involving Tiger Woods.

You friggin' retard.
