    That's a weird one. Not alchohol related yet charges pending, serious injuries but less than 33 MPH.

    If alcohol wasn't involved, I wonder if he had some kind of medical issue. Like a seizure, or some type of heart problem.

    I hope he makes a full recovery.

    Tiger Woods in car crash

    This being reported on several sites...


    Tiger Woods in SUV crash near Florida home


    Florida Highway Patrol is reporting Tiger Woods was transported the hospital early Friday after crashing his vehicle into a fire hydrant near his residence in Windermere, Fla., outside Orlando.

    According to an official release from FHP and reported by Florida Today, Woods, had pulled out of his driveway in a Cadillac SUV.

    As he began to drive .... (Woods) struck a fire hydrant," FHP reported. The front of Wood's vehicle "then struck a tree" located at a neighboring property.

    Woods was transported to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee in serious condition, FHP reported, according to Orlando Sentinel. However, a hospital employee said at 2:30 p.m. ET that Woods was not a patient. A hospital operator would not say if Woods had been treated and released.

    Florida Today says FHP is reporting the crash remains under investigation and that charges are pending. The extent of Woods' injuries are unknown.

    The FHP report indicates alcohol was not a factor in the crash. It also indicates "unknown" on whether a seat belt was used.

    Well, I'm glad his family wasn't with him and I'm glad alcohol wasn't involved. I hope he's ok.

    Eyewitness accounts say he jumped out of the car and threw a tire iron into the crowd that gathered.

    Can you blame him? He demands perfection from himself and he's been struggling to keep it in the middle lately. I bet someone took a picture during his turn.

    Re: Tiger Woods in serious condition after car wreck

    This is yet another case of how the media falls all over themselves overreacting to a story regarding a personality....first it was a "SERIOUS ACCIDENT", then it became a concern over his facial lacerations and now it is pretty much chalked up as a minor accident---come on ESPNNEWS, CNN, et al...dont you have anything else to report on?

    Now, to get on my own "soap box"---it was reported that authorities said no alcohol was involved...but when someone pulls out of a driveway at 2:30 in the morning after Thanksgiving and takes out a hydrant and a tree...me thinks that person may be full of "Holiday Cheer" or he was just in a rush to get to the Doorbusters at Best Buy.

    Most likely he was tanked. They showed a pic of his house, the neighbors house is next door and the driveways are linked. They probably couldn't charge him with DUI, since he was never on a public roadway or anything, always on private property.

    I thought Tiger was a better driver than that.
