Tiger Woods seriously injured in car crash? Update: “Domestic issue”

posted at 3:24 pm on November 27, 2009 by Allahpundit

Not our usual fare, but he’s the most famous athlete in the world and this is the slowest non-holiday news day of the year, which makes it darned near obligatory. Besides, there’s already intrigue swirling around the circumstances: Pulling out of his own driveway at 2:30 a.m., he hits a fire hydrant and a tree — and yet, according to the cops, there was no booze involved. Hmmmmm:

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…

FHP said the airbags in Woods’ Cadillac Escalade did not deploy, which means the vehicle was traveling under 33 mph.

Is he really in serious condition? His agent claims he’s fine and WESH says only that he suffered facial lacerations — although, according to the FHP, unspecified charges are pending. Hmmmm again. Stand by for updates, but in the meantime, an exit question: How do you lose control of a car so badly while pulling out of your own driveway that you end up playing pinball with not one but two fixed objects?

Update: TMZ: “As for reports charges are pending, we’re told charges could range from DUI to reckless driving … to nothing.”

Update: The Sentinel now says he was released from the hospital early this morning, which is hard to square with the reports of him having been in serious condition. The cuts to his face must have been awfully nasty.

Update: Yet another update from the Sentinel suggests that this wasn’t quite as bad as advertised: “FHP spokesman Jorge Delahoz said patients’ conditions are always classified as ‘serious’ if they are transported to a hospital.”

Update: A neighbor tells TMZ that he looks fine.

Update: Commenters were speculating earlier that, given the hour, he might have left the house in a huff after arguing with his wife and pulled out of the driveway with the adrenaline pumping. Speculation confirmed.

It’s pathetics that we can’t have a post about a black man and grown adults can’t help themselves from making veiled racist comments. (As if the rest of us thinks it’s funny).

Not to be a total scrooge: there are plenty of jokes to be made about driving skills and avoiding tree hazards, however.

Golf is a thinking man/woman’s game. You may be playing against others in a tournament, but most of all you’re playing against yourself and past scores.

Can you get a DUI if you’re not on the public roads?

Trainwreck on November 27, 2009 at 4:16 PM

Yes. Even on private property, if you are behind the wheel and the keys are in the ignition, in most states that is cause for arrest. Remember, preventing DUI is a major priority these days.

There have been cases where very good DUI lawyers have gotten their clients off on this charge however. And he can afford the best, I am sure. Wonder if Roy Black is available?

Hypothetical: Pulling out of your driveway at 2:30 am and expecting streets to be clear when to your surprise a car appears and you crank the wheel hard, striking two stationary objects somewhat close together. Upon striking said objects your face comes in contact with steering wheel.

Wasn’t aware that the late far-Left racing team owner Paul Newman was a “redneck”, sweetie.

http://www.newman-haas.com/

More background on this “redneck race fan” from wiki:

For his strong support of Eugene McCarthy in 1968 (and effective use of television commercials in California) and his strong opposition to the War in Vietnam, Newman was placed nineteenth on Richard Nixon’s enemies list, which he claimed was his greatest accomplishment.

Consistent with his work for liberal causes, Newman publicly supported Ned Lamont’s candidacy in the 2006 Connecticut Democratic Primary against Senator Joe Lieberman, and was even rumored as a candidate himself, until Lamont emerged as a credible alternative. He donated to Chris Dodd’s presidential campaign.

He attended the first Earth Day event in Manhattan on April 22, 1970. Newman was also a vocal supporter of gay rights, including same-sex marriage

Thanks for playing, Race Fan!

Rober Gibbs’ press statement: “Reports are that a runaway tree, traveling 30 MPH, hit a car owned by golfing pro Tiger Woods as he was pulling out of his driveway at 2:30 AM.

blatantblue on November 27, 2009 at 4:54 PM

Tatweer is a division of Dubai Holding, which is owned by the emirate and its ruler, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The golf course project, known as The Tiger Woods Dubai, will be part of a massive theme-park complex known as Dubailand the company is building on barren desert along the edge of the city.

Gurg said the company is spending 4 billion dirhams — about $1.09 billion — to build the course and the surrounding housing development.

He wouldn’t say how much Woods was being paid.

Nor does it say how much Tiger Woods invested in it. But if their was an argument with his wife over this alleged affair and then he went to check the news (many do not on holidays) and found out his investment was possibly going down the tubes, it might just have felt good to hit a fire hydrant and tree.

The city’s lookin’ like a ghost town
On a moonless summer night.

There’s a storm moving in.
He’s headin’ back from somewhere
That he never should have been.
And the thunder rolls.
And the thunder rolls.

Every light is burnin’
In a house across town.
She’s pacin’ by the telephone
In her faded flannel gown.
Askin’ for a miracle,
Hopin’ she’s not right,
Prayin’ it’s the weather
That’s kept him out all night.
And the thunder rolls.
And the thunder rolls.

(Chorus)
The thunder rolls
And the lightnin’ strikes.
Another love grows cold
On a sleepless night,
As the storm blows on
Out of control
Deep in her heart
The thunder rolls.

She’s waitin’ by the window
When he pulls into the drive
She rushes out to hold him
Thankful he’s alive
Through all the wind and rain
A strange new perfume blows
And the lightnin’ flashes in her eyes
And he knows that she knows
And the thunder rolls
And the thunder rolls”

Yeah, right. More like, after chasing him down the driveway with a golf club, she nailed the car with the golf club. Driving erratically to avoid her, he ran into the fire hydrant and then the tree. He probably got knocked out by the air bag, and his face was likely marked up by his wristwatch when the airbug thrust his wrist arm into his face.

Domestic squabble.

It’s pathetics that we can’t have a post about a black man and grown adults can’t help themselves from making veiled racist comments. (As if the rest of us thinks it’s funny).

If the “racist comments” are “veiled”, then how can YOU see them?

Perhaps YOU are in need of some soul-searching.

David2.0 on November 27, 2009 at 8:46 PM

Pure conjecture, of course, but

I don’t know of anything that can make one do more bonkers crazy stuff than a fight with a woman. If he was in a helluva fight, he could have run through 3 front yards and not known it.

Living proof – oncet I was in such a crazy fight (over the phone!) that I took a laptop she’d bought me, balanced it on a watermelon hill and put the phone nearby, aimed for the apple and fired away. So jacked up on adrenalin was I that the slug missed high, went into the shed and busted the landlord’s toilet. The computer got a reprieve based on the old “rope broke” rule.

Unless Tiger was on drugs, it had to be a woman

I hate to see this happen, Tiger has always been a different kind of athlete. I was always impressed with the way he handles his success, more classy than cocky. I loved it when he refused to be a poster-boy for the left when he first started racking up wins in the 90s. It was great when he told the feminists that he wasn’t going to be a spokesman or resign his position in a men’s club. It sounds like this was just a domestic dispute with his wife but with all the millions of dollars and great life they lead, its puzzling to understand what they could have to argue about.

Your scenario sounds about right (except for reports on the airbag). One alternative is his recent return from China and possible jet-lag and sleeping medication (though he’s an athlete who flies private jets and is used to constant travel). If I had to bet, it’s likely closer to your version. She heard a car crash and her first reaction is to grab a golf club and run down the driveway to help? Seems odd.

LOL

Well Tiger to me always seemed snobby. He didn’t just get married, he had to pick a Swedish White Model. so… whatever. To each their own. Doesn’t change my life one bit.

Having a fight with the wife-threw one of his temper tantrums.

Bullhead on November 27, 2009 at 4:51 PM

Tiger’s little snits on the tee box have been getting worse as of late. At his last tournament, after he sprayed his drive once again, he slammed his driver down into the turf. He must have thrown it down, because they showed a quick shot of fans two rows back in the gallery handing the club back to Tiger.

Bobby Jones had a terrific temper and threw clubs all the time until one time the club bounced off the turf and hit a lady in the shins. He was so embarrassed and humbled that he never did it again. It would nice to see Tiger grow up a little.

Mallard T. Drake on November 27, 2009 at 9:15 PM

I keep hearing that because the airbag didn’t deploy, the vehicle must have been moving under 30 mph. Is 30 mph the gov’t standard? I thought that surely it must have been around 20? Because even at 20 mph, hitting something solid can smash your face or even break your neck. Hmmm

cane_loader on November 27, 2009 at 9:15 PM

Tiger has always been known to drive erratically……off the tee box.

Mallard T. Drake on November 27, 2009 at 9:17 PM

..but he’s the most famous athlete in the world…

Yes, he’s very good at what he does, but,
it’s called the game of golf.
Bottom line,
If you can’t pull a hamstring doing it,
It’s not a sport!

mrt721 on November 27, 2009 at 9:18 PM

Tiger is an amazing athlete, one of the best ever. Glad he’s doing alright.

therightwinger on November 27, 2009 at 9:29 PM

Let’s avoid creating “drama” when this guy has historically been a non-drama kind of guy. Cut him some slack, he’s shown himself to have class and deserves our respect.

pjean on November 27, 2009 at 8:13 PM

All the “drama” in this case seems to emanate from the Woods’ household.

Methinks if this were Dick Cheney you’d be throwing around the terms “wife-beater” and “Halliburton”.

You have no credibility, douche.

30 mph sounds awfully fast to me, too.

The airbags in my Toyota Rav4 deployed in a front-end crash at below 20 mph.

OK, let’s not go completely nuts. It’s a game, not a sport. In sports, you work up a sweat every now and then. He competes with senior citizens.

Golf is a tough game, though.

David2.0 on November 27, 2009 at 9:30 PM

Yeah, it’s got nothing to do with everyone in the world looking to dig into it. Hey, we own him, right?

Pablo on November 27, 2009 at 10:06 PM

The part of the story that did not make sense from the start was her breaking the back window to get him out!

LMAO,

Thinking she was chasing his a$$ and broke the back window, meanwhile he was yelling, don’t hit my effing car woman!

Lost control looking in the rear view mirror and hit the hydrant and tree.

Guessing once he got out she smacked him a good one with the club then her bare foot ringing his bean.

Swedish bombshell models don’t come without a price and it isn’t come cheap.

Lawyers convene next week. Hot Swedish blonde worth $40m on the market in six months.

Golfer worth $1 bil that keeps a quirky schedule back on the singles scene.

The drama?

Don’t know what I have to do with it, and unlike you, I’ve never imagined “owning” a black man.

The media attention seems to have come after the fact, yes?

The real drama played out in the rarified air of wealth amd privilege in Windermere, FL at 2:25am.

This is EXACTLY what happened.

The police know it, too. They are not stupid.

Let’s see if the truth gets buried here.
