The Florida Highway Patrol said Woods, 33, hit the hydrant and a tree after pulling out of his driveway in his 2009 Cadillac sports utility vehicle...
The patrol said alcohol was not involved, though the accident remains under investigation.
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tiger Woods was injured in a car wreck early Friday near his Florida home, but was released from the hospital later in the day.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the crash occurred at 2:25 a.m. ET. Woods was driving a 2009 Cadillac sport utility vehicle. No one else was in the car.
The highway patrol reported Woods' injuries as serious, though Woods spokesman, Glenn Greenspan, said Friday afternoon that the golfer was treated at the hospital and released in good condition. Greenspan's statement termed the accident "minor."
The police report narrative said the "driver had just pulled out of the driveway at his residence ... as [vehicle] began to drive on Deacon Circle, [vehicle] struck a fire hydrant. The front of [vehicle] then struck a tree..."
The airbags in the car did not deploy, according to a report in the Orlando Sentinel. The newspaper said airbags typically do not deploy if a vehicle is traveling less than 33 miles per hour.
Woods agent, Mark Steinberg, told USA Today that Woods is fine. Golf World magazine executive editor Ron Sirak said on ESPNEWS that Woods has "facial lacerations."
Yeah, if charges could still be laid - or maybe he was texting someone? (lol)
And just where was he going at that hour of the morning? Had he had a fight with the missus?
why do people always look for drama in things? Im not trying point a finger at anyone (though I know it may seem like that with my quoting your comment), but could it be he just couldn't sleep. I mean I used to do the same thing, just get up and go for a drive. Lets not jump to conclusions until the facts come out.
I think he had a fight with his wife, she lacerated his face with a wine glass, he stormed out, got in his car, started texting his girlfriend to tell her he was on his way over, wasn't looking at the road, and crash, bang, boom - accident.
