WINDERMERE, Fla. -- WESH 2 News has learned that golfer Tiger Woods was injured when he hit a fire hydrant and then a tree outside of 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.
Woods was driving a 2009 black Escalade when he lost control and hit a fire hydrant outside of his home and a tree outside his neighbor's home, FHP said.
FHP said the crash is still under investigation. It said alcohol did not play a role in the crash, but that charges are pending.
Florida Highway Patrol didn't release the information until 2 p.m. ET today.The weird thing is this happend almost 10 hours ago and we just heard about it.
Good point, they are saying he is in serious condition which is unusual at that low of speed.Whatever the circumstances, let's all cross our fingers that he's ok because he truly is the face of golf at the moment. Let's also hope that nothing sketchy/illegal (e.g. drugs, etc.) was involved because that will not be good for the game in an already tough time to find sponsors, etc.
The people behind that report are the Enquirer and there has yet to be a shred of proof about it.
Hence the word "supposed" in my post. I believe the Enquirer is the one who broke the story about John Edwards.I hate reports like that - whether true or not - it's no one's business and it's just hurtful.
