I’ve been pretty disconnected from the computer today, figured I’d spend the day with the family and take a day off from the blog. So, after putting the boys down for the night, I figured I’d hop on real quick and check my email before watching a movie with the wife.
I received an email from BBC news (first time and probably last time) and they asked if I would do an interview on the “woods story.” I was thinking, “Woods story? What Woods story?”
Imagine my surprise when I googled “Tiger Woods News” and the first result was….
“Tiger Woods wife rescues golfer from smashed up car.”
It’s been reported that around 2:30 am, Tiger Woods was driving his SUV and crashed into a fire hydrant after hitting the neighbors tree. His wife Elin Nordegren Woods, heard the crash and ran outside with a golf club, smashed the window of the Caddillac Escalade and pulled him out. Good thing Tiger’s not the only one who knows how to swing a golf club!
When the police arrived, Tiger had cuts on his lips, blood in his mouth, was unconscious but breathing. He was unconscious for about six minutes. Officers administered first aid until medical personnel arrived. He was transported to a Windermere hospital and released a few hours later.
There’s no word on whether Tiger was wearing his seat belt, but alcohol is not being considered as a factor in the accident.
The airbag in Wood’s Escalade did not deploy, which means the vehicle was traveling under 33 mph (or they weren’t functioning.. :)), according to FHP.
The police arrived at the Woods residence Friday evening to interview Tiger Woods about the accident, but Elin informed them that he was resting and asked them to come back Saturday.
There’s no word on who phoned the police and the recordings aren’t available.
As of now, the latest word is that Tiger Woods was treated, released and is in good condition and they thank everyone for their concern and well wishes.
I’ll try and post up an update as soon as I get some additional info, but I hope everyone will keep the family in their thoughts and prayers.
