Professional golfer Tiger Woods was involved in a car accident early Friday morning.Â The accident occurred right outside of Woods’ home, and he was treated at the local medical center in Ocoee, Florida.Â Woods was released soon thereafter.Â The Tiger Woods car accident generated a lot of media buzz as well as rumors as to what was going on between Tiger and wife Elin.
According to ESPN and other reports, the accident occurred around 2:52 AM Friday when Woods lost control of his SUV outside his mansion.Â The SUV crashed into a fire hydrant and tree in his neighbor’s yard.Â His wife apparently heard the crash occur, then ran out and used a golf club to smash the back window to help rescue her husband.Â
It was reported that when police arrived on the scene, Woods was lying on the ground with lacerations to his upper and lower lips as well as blood in his mouth.Â His model wife, Elin, was hovering over him and was frantically upset according to Daniel Saylor, the Windermere police chief.Â Woods was in and out of consciousness and mumbling incoherently.Â Saylor’s officers were the first to arrive at the accident scene, so the majority of details have come from him at this point.Â Â Luckily, Woods was treated and released from the hospital and is doing ok now, resting at his home.Â His wife Elin answered the door when police arrived Friday to question Woods about the accident.Â At that time she informed them her husband was resting and would talk to them Saturday.
The Tiger Woods car accident news was not reported for a good 12 hours following the incident itself, due to the fact it didn’t qualify as a major accident.Â Details were released via press release due to numerous media inquiries.Â Woods has yet to be charged but could receive reckless driving charges.Â There’s been rumors that there was a domestic dispute which preceded the accident, but police have said at this point they believe it to be a traffic crash, not a domestic issue.
Next up for Tiger is his Chevron Challenge and at this time it’s unknown if Tiger will appear at the tournament which benefits his foundation.Â Stay tuned for more details.
