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.

I believe I commented before, and again glad you're okay, and you're going to be part of now, and especially being you, and if you don't mind just a few minutes to save 100 lives. Be ready pal. Number uno Distance with speed at all times. DISTANCE, DISTANCE, DISTANCE. It's going to save more lives than ever this year. We're up to 524 already, don't want to hit 537 (fatalities lost last year here in NJ). Good luck to us. Pass it on. Distance makes the difference. Things are going to change a lot with the littlest this year. Nothin but good

I love the spin the Tiger Camp is trying to pull.
Does anything about this make sense to anyone out there?
Why in the world would she have to smash out the back window when there are 5 doors to an escalade that she could of just opened. I think tmz is right in reporting this story.
A - Fight for Cheating
B - The window was smashed by her as Tiger drove down the driveway
C - Tiger cant drive

So what.. he may have had an argument with his wife... I don`t know.. I wasn´t there.. so he it anFH and he hit somebody´s tree... a bit of colletoral damage... and do we have to make a big splash of it ?? I´d make a big splash about the airbags not working... that´s what I would be screaming about.. Not becaus I ran over a Fire Hydrant and did not even fell a tree.... So.. should he be charged ??... His driver license revoked ?? Hey Poleece...I´ve got a couple of terrorists in my yard... could you take off some time and move them out ?? Tiger can pay for the community damage he caused, the FH and the tree... he´s got some spare loot.. so don´t make such a fuss about Tiger... Don´t upset hme.... He´t got to win the next couple of puts... Thát´s what I want him to do.... He´s my sports hero.. Now MOVE.... Gangway folks... From this GripeVine.... & Donah !!

Tiger, I feel your pain. I have been attacked by a crazy spouse before. You just want to get away. Wonder what club she was swinging? I think she was trying to break his putter. The one he can't keep at home in his pants.

If he was under the influence of pain pills and this accident was caused because he was drunk from that he is responsible. Even if a person takes prescription medicine they are not to drive a car if it impairs their ability to drive. The whole piece about him cheating on his wife and she striking the vehicle he drove with a golf club does not look at all. It sounds like a domestic abuse issue. How fast things add up when one is a celebrity. How fast things can all go bad.

come on people, he's not a saint. Man cheats, takes painkillers,wife freaks and chases him out of the driveway with a golfclub. That's the way it would be reported for any other family in the world. this happens in marriages every day. International news? I think not.

Ok, well Tiger's not the first husband & father to get in a heated
argument w/ his spouse and react by driving off in a huff; however because he damaged public property (fire Hydrant & Tree) he owes the FHP a full explanation of what transpired & it would be my belief that the longer he puts this off the more damaging it could be. Separately any details of Tiger's personal life are really not anybodys business even the FHP & especially the Media who inevitably misrepresnt the facts in effort to win more attention at others peoples expense. Get the police report, charge Tiger with his traffice offense (possibly reckless driving) & then leave the man alone.
