Wow. This is weird. Tiger Woods was hurt in a very strange car accident early this morning. He was backing out of his own driveway at 2:25 in the a.m. Hmmmmm. Read on.
via The Orlando Sentinal:
"Professional golfer Tiger Woods was seriously injured in a car accident early this morning, the Florida Highway Patrol just reported.
Woods, 33, pulled out of his driveway in the Isleworth community about 2:25 a.m. when he struck a fire hydrant, and then drove into a tree at his neighbor's property, FHP reported.
Woods was transported to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee in serious condition, FHP said. No other information about his condition has been released.
A Health Central hospital employee said at 2:30 p.m. that Woods was not a patient. A hospital operator would not say if Woods had been treated and released."
FHP said the airbags in Woods' Cadillac Escalade did not deploy, which means the vehicle was traveling under 33 mph.
Orange County Fire Rescue received the call for aid at 2:28 a.m. Woods was transported from his Windermere-area neighborhood by the hospital's own ambulance."
Ummm, I'm tryna figure out how one can be "seriously injured" by backing into a fire hydrant and a tree at under 33 mph. Can someone help me out with this?
Oh, and here's some more strangeness--I'm hearing all kinds of rumors about Tiger cheating on his wife, Elin with some old blonde named Rachel Uchitel. When oh when will these GD athletes just keep it zipped??
I'm finding the news of Tiger's car accident and this bit of crap NON-coincidental in terms of timing.
**UPDATE: Tiger has been released from the hospital...but I tell ya what; the trouble has only just begun. Mark my words, y'all.
Authorities are saying alcohol was "not a factor", but charges may be brought. Wow.
