UPDATED: Woods' publicist issued a statement calling the accident minor, and that Tiger was "admitted, treated and released today in good condition."
Golf superstar Tiger Woods is in serious condition after a single-car crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
According to the report, Woods was leaving his house at 2:25 a.m. today
when he struck a fire hydrant and then a neighbor's tree. An emergency
call was placed three minutes later, after which Woods was admitted to
Health Central Hospital in serious condition, according to the FHP.
When asked for comment this afternoon, hospital officials denied Woods was a patient, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
The accident is under investigation, and there's a possibility Woods could be charged. Alcohol wasn't a factor in the crash, the FHP tells WESH-TV in Orlando.
The station is also reporting that Woods was treated for lacerations on his face.
