Tiger Woods was pulling out of his own driveway at his home in Windmere, Florida when he was seriously injured in a car accident early Friday morning. According to a police report, the 33 year-old professional golfer drove his 2009 Cadillac Escalade into a fire hydrant and then hit a tree in his neighbor’s yard. Woods was transported to nearby Health Central Hospital where sources say he was treated and released for facial lacerations. "He was admitted, treated and released today in good condition", said Susan Jackson, a spokesperson for Health Central Hospital. The Florida Highway Patrol says Woods’ airbags did not deploy, meaning the vehicle was traveling under 33 miles per hour. The police report also says the accident was not alcohol-related, but that charges are pending. The world’s top golfer lives in Orlando with his wife and two children – no word on where they were at the time of the accident. Woods is scheduled to host his tournament, the Chevron World Challenge, on Monday at Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, California. There is no word yet if he will still travel to the event.
