Woods Hit Fire Hydrant, Tree
Tiger Woods Injured In Crash Outside Home
WINDERMERE, Fla. -- WESH 2 News has learned that golfer Tiger Woods was injured when he hit a fire hydrant and then a tree outside his Isleworth home early on Friday morning. The Florida Highway Patrol said Woods was injured in the crash, which took place at about 2:30 a.m., and was taken to Health Central Hospital. The Orange County Fire Department confirmed that a patient was taken to Health Central, but would not confirm that the patient was Woods. A source told WESH 2 News that Woods has been treated for facial lacerations.
It's like having another Macbytes around to post italicised extracts from articles.
Hope Tiger is OK. The circumstances sound a bit fishy though.....
Before jumping to the worst conclusions (drugs, alchohol, texting, lap dance while driving). He could have simply fell asleep, swerved to miss someone or an animal, or some other sudden distraction.
Hopefully he has a full recovery.
Simply fell asleep? surely that would deserve jail time.
? for hitting a tree?
Looks like it is a serious injury if he messed up his purty face, and will have to miss some of his sponsorship responsibilities while his cuts heal.
Tiger Woods in Serious Condition After Car Wreck
Wow, I hope he is ok.
I don't think there is any info on how serious.
Beeb is reporting he was coming out of driveway and airbags did not deploy,so it seems he wasn't going very fast.Why would a man with his money buy a Cadillac SUV?
(whoops sorry I thought I was in the other thread)
How do you fall asleep pulling out of your driveway?
The only conclusion that can be drawn from this accident (he was sent home already, apparently) is how poor are cadillac suvs, if hitting a tree in your driveway at <30mph lands you in a hospital.
My guess is he wasn't wearing his seatbelt. It will be interesting to hear what really happened.
Where is the assumption that he was in his driveway come from? He was outside his home. I can be 1000 miles away and be outside my home. While he hit a neighbor's tree suggests to me that he either came cruising home real fast or went to drive away real fast. Either way, hard to lose control of an SUV just pulling in or out of your drive at normal speeds.
If he was sent home already the injuries weren't that serious. I would only assume he wasn't wearing a seat belt, not sure what charges they would file though. Destruction of a fire hydrant?
The standard catch all would likely be "Failure to Maintain Control" and a fee for damages to and the repair of the fire hydrant.
was it poor driving or birdie watching that putt tiger in the rough?
This is both terrible and quite funny
Wish I hate thought of it! Nice work Don't panic !
Cnn says he had minor facial lacerations and was released earlier today. Hardly "serious condition".
I call it "He feel asleep while driving due to long Thanksgiving"
You win the keys to the interwebz.
I've updated the title of the thread in light of the revised story to which I originally linked, which indicated he was in "serious condition" based upon the Florida Highway Patrol report.
LOL, funny how they decided they had to comment on the Escalade's crash worthiness.
Tiger Woods crash: Cadillac Escalade generally offers good accident protection
TMZ is reporting that the facial lacerations were from his wife. They allegedly got in an argument over infidelity and Tiger beat a hasty retreat in the SUV and crashed.
I really hope it's all BS. I like Tiger Woods and like to think the best of him. He is a role model for many so I hope this incident is just a simple accident.
