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.

Dear Rachel Uchitel,

Stop posting pictures of yourself. Are you just a fame hungry liar?

You are pretty hot though...... ;)

What was he doing in a Cadillac?
Maybe he should have stuck with Buick?

To malt liquor, you should be ashamed to connect a degrading stereotype that they put on African Americans (40 oz.) to someone who has changed the view that the game of golf is only for one race of people. Tiger Woods is not only good for golf but good for all people as he has proven in his charitable organization. Maybe you, malt liquor, should try water first before you try to bring someone down who believe it or not is not just a celebrity but a human being. I feel sorry for you.

Given Tiger's influence, who is being charged by police for DUI, the tree or the fire hydrant?

for those who said he was drunk!

The crash is under investigation, and charges are pending, though it was not clear who could face charges. The accident did not appear to have been alcohol-related, the Florida Highway Patrol statement said

Hope Tiger is okay and he and Eilan were just having a little spat. As to what happedned; well, let's say it was his worst drive of the year, but he still hit the green (fire hydrant).

# 147 If he fell and died should we not then believe the headlines stating that he is dead? Or should we wait until he is buried until we validate a statement? You are the one that has a comprehension problem. TMZ needs to validate something before they write it down.

Hey Tiger, if you can't drive your Escalade, hand me the keys!

Score so far:
Fire hydrant 0, Tiger Woods 1

Really? A helicopter picture of the hole in the ground where the hydrant used to be? You guys at TMZ need to get some lives! I think the other five main page stories about this crash will suffice; I'm pretty sure we will be ok without the helicopter shot of the missing hydrant. I guess everything is "breaking news" in Hollywood.

Mr. Woods learned an invaluable lesson for his next marriage...never admit to the wife that another woman is stroking your putter.

I’m puzzled as to how Tiger's condition could be classified as “serious” after an accident that didn’t jar the vehicle enough to cause the air bags to deploy.

Anyway it’s an age-old story of a man’s wife finding out about his having an affair with another women. Stay tuned because we’re at the point where things get really interesting.

What sort of spin will we be told now? Personally, I enjoy these little melodramas.
