    (CNN) -- Golfer Tiger Woods was taken to a Florida hospital after suffering serious injuries in a car wreck early Friday, officials said.

    The one-car accident occurred about 2:25 a.m. near his home in Windermere, a suburb of Orlando, according to an incident report from the Florida Highway Patrol.

    Woods, 33, had just pulled out of his driveway and begun to drive down the street when his Cadillac SUV struck a fire hydrant, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The front of his vehicle then struck a tree.
    Woods was taken to Health Central Hospital, though a woman who answered the phone Friday afternoon said he was not there.

    The crash is under investigation and charges are pending, though it was not clear who could face charges. The accident did not appear to have been alcohol-related, the statement said.

    I wish him a full recovery.

    Hmmm....in a one car accident, I wonder who potentially would/could face charges??? :dunno:

    I hope he has a speedy recovery.

    Good one Miss Kitty! :lol: Does anyone know him?

    CNN says that the police arrived in two minutes. When they arrived, Woods' wife had broken out the back window with a golf club "to help him get out of the vehicle." Let's see, someone has a wreck while leaving their home in an Escalade, and his wife breaks the REAR window? Wouldn't she find a window closer to where he was seated?

    Sounds like a marital argument to me. He probably had the wreck from being distracted by her swinging a golf club at the vehicle.

    EDIT: What about the symbolism of using one of Tiger's beloved golf clubs to break out the window? Hubby is a casual golfer, and he says that even for him, each golf club is special to him. He would prefer that someone use something else to break out a window to "save his life" than one of his golf clubs.

    That was the 1st thing we wondered too. Why would Tiger be going somewhere at 2:35am on Thanksgiving?? He wouldn't be going to the airport; he'd have a limo or driver for that.

    It even sounds as tho he didn't have his seatbelt on either. :blink:

    I'll say what everyone else is saying too, I really hope the best for him and that he heals well, etc., etc., etc...

    Sounds very fishy to me. There is a naughty story/rumor of something happening in Australia recently by one of the rags. I wish I had a link but I can't remember where I saw it early this morning.
    I am pleased that he will be ok.

    Well, these are the rumors. Keeping in mind that Elin Nordegen, his wife, has always seemed very classy and is from a prominent Swedish family. Always seemed like a good match for Tiger, not knowing much about her of course.

    But the latest from TMZ and the National Enquirer are that:

    1) Tiger was having an affair (in the Enquirer this week)
    2) Elin confronted him about it that night
    3) She scratched his face up
    4) He bolted
    5) He started driving away and she came after the back of the car with a golf club
    6) He was distracted (obviously) and hit the fire hydrant and the tree
    7) He has been taking prescription painkillers, explaining why he was a bit out of it

    Of course, this is TMZ we are talking about, but none of it is that surprising. She gave up a lot to stay home with him in Orlando and raise two babies. It is hard. She went bananas. I'm not excusing it but I might have too.

    Still, I'm betting the marriage will be saved.
