I have to admit, I don’t quite understand this:
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.
Police say charges are pending, but that no alcohol was involved. How do you get seriously injured running your Escalade into a fire hydrant at low speeds? Because, like, if I had to go to the hospital every time I accidentally ran my SUV into, ya know, a parking garage wall, I’d just have a regular parking spot at the damn hospital.
Either way, I sincerely hope he’s okay and has a speedy recovery. Just not speedy enough to run into a fire hydrant.
