Tiger Woods "Seriously Injured" in Car Accident
By Stephanie Wei under General

Shortly after Tiger pulled out of his driveway of his Isleworth, Florida, home at 2:25 AM Friday morning, he hit a fire hydrant. Then, he drove the car, a 2009 Cadillac Escalade, into a tree on his neighbor’s residence.

He was traveling at under 33 mph because no airbags were deployed, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The police report notes it was NOT alcohol related.

Little information has been released. But it’s reported he sustained facial lacerations and his injuries are serious. According to CNN, the actual status of his condition is currently unknown.

Could there be a more inopportune time for Tiger to get into a car accident than 2:30 in the morning in front of his own house?

*Update (3:04PM): Darren Rovell tweeted: Tiger Woods’ agent on condition: “He is fine.”

*Update (3:21PM): According to CNN, Tiger has been released from the hospital. Has he gone home? (Rather, has Elin let him back in the house?) No one knows.

*Update (3:26PM): And see Jason Whitlock’s Twitter for his theory. Hmmm…

*Update (3:47PM): According to CNN, Tiger’s publicist released a statement: “Tiger Woods was in minor car accident. He was admitted, treated and released from the hospital. He’s in good condition.”
