Tiger Woods - car crash, BONUS affair talk [Update: Divorced]

From CNN: Golfer Tiger Woods was injured in a car accident this morning, the Florida Highway Patrol reports.

Anyone else hear anything more substantial?

Took this from our AP source at work.

Authorities say Tiger Woods has been
seriously injured in a car wreck in Florida.
The Florida Highway Patrol says the PGA star hit a fire hydrant
and a tree as he pulled out of his driveway early Friday in his
2009 Cadillac sport utility vehicle.
Woods was taken to Health Central Hospital. His condition was
not immediately known, though the news release said his injuries
were serious.
The highway patrol says the crash is still under investigation,
and charges are pending. However, the highway patrol said the crash
was not alcohol-related.

Just saw this on CNN. They also mention facial injuries.

Since the police report is being read out loud, his home address is being repeated live several times. Smart.

How do you hit a fire hydrant AND a tree coming out of your driveway? And hard enough to be seriously injured?

They showed the aerial view on espn, I don't know how you wreck on that driveway (it's not very long, and it's pretty straight), unless you are wasted or being very careless. There has to be more to this than what they are letting on so far.

Aerial view of his house + home address being repeated on television = sheer stupidity.

re: Tiger Woods - car crash, BONUS affair talk [Update: Divorced]

This is why the media is so irresponsible. They first reported that he has 'serious' injuries, which I thought meant career ending or might even be close to dying. Then you hear now that he just had facial injuries and was released.

How about this......wait until you get anything definitive!!!!

Although I want to know what the hell Tiger was doing at 2:25 AM after Thanksgiving driving into a fire hydrant and then a tree right in front of his house??????????? Thats just sounds bizarre.....

Probably because people are tired of hearing about him like I was tired of hearing reports of this wreck every five minutes. Enough is enough.

we're seriously not surprised that another one of Tiger's drives has ended at a base of a tree are we?

Ah, when one of, if not THE most recognizable athlete in the world gets into a "serious" car accident do you really think nobody is going to report it?

Prior to today, when was the last time you heard about him? He hasn't played for a couple weeks and other than when he's playing you don't hear anything about him unless you sit in front of ESPN and the Golf Channel 24 hours a day.

Stanford was playing Cal. Tiger went to Stanford. The Cal fans at the game booed Tiger because he went to Stanford.

That the first thing I thought when I heard the story. 2:00AM? Smashing into a fire hydrant then crashing into a tree?
