Tiger Woods injured in crash

Charges pending, FHP says

ORLANDO, Fla. - Golfer Tiger Woods was injured in a crash at 2:25 a.m. Friday on his street in Windermere, Fla., according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The highway patrol reported that his injuries were "serious," but TigerWoods.com reported Woods has been treated and released and is in good condition.

Woods, 33, had just pulled out of his driveway and begun to drive when his Cadillac sport utility vehicle hit a fire hydrant and then a tree, the highway patrol said. He was taken to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee.

The Windermere mayor said Woods was only slightly hurt, but there was a lot of blood because he suffered cuts to his face. He said Woods was going in and out of consciousness when his wife smashed the window of the SUV to pull him out and laid him down on the ground.

The crash is under investigation and charges are pending, the highway patrol said. It was not clear who could face charges. Alcohol was not involved, according to a highway patrol press release.
