November 27, 2009

Report: Tiger Woods 'Seriously' Injured in Car Crash Tiger Woods was in a car crash early Friday morning and was "seriously" injured, according to The Orlando Sentinel.

Citing a Florida Highway Patrol report, the Sentiel said that "Woods, 33, pulled out of his driveway in the Isleworth [Fla.] community about 2:25 a.m. when he struck a fire hydrant, and then drove into a tree at his neighbor's property."

Woods was then transported to a hospital and was in serious condition, though no other information has been released. The report said that the airbags in Woods' Cadillac Escalade did not deploy, meaning he was not traveling above 33 mph. A source told WESH 2 News in Orlando that Woods has been treated for facial lacerations.

The FHP will investigate the crash and charges are pending, according to the Sentinel. The Associated Press reported that alcohol was not involved and that there was nobody else in the vehicle.

Woods is the world's top-ranked golfer, having won 71 PGA tournaments and 14 majors. He won the 2009 FedEx Cup, the PGA's version of a playoff, in his first season back from knee surgery.
