Tiger in Hospital After Car Crash

(CNN) — Golfer Tiger Woods has been taken to a hospital after being injured in a car wreck near his central Florida home early Friday, officials said.

The one-car accident occurred about 2:25 a.m. 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. He has been transported to Health Central Hospital, the statement said.

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.

Woods lives in Orange County with his wife, supermodel Elin Nordegren, and two children.

Woods has won 93 tournaments, 71 of those on the PGA Tour, including the 1997, 2001, 2002 and 2005 Masters Tournaments, 1999, 2000, 2006 and 2007 PGA Championships, 2000, 2002, and 2008 U.S. Open Championships, and 2000, 2005 and 2006 Open Championships, according to his official Web site.

    Something doesn’t seem quite right here. Where in the world would Tiger be going at 2:30 in the morning, leaving his wife and kids alone? Scratches on his face? Hmmm. His wife using a golfclub to break the back window, when all she had to do was open the door (wouldn’t she have a key?)? Why is he being so elusive with the police? I don’t know. I’m not suggesting anything sinister or that any hanky-panky has been going on, but….
