Tiger Woods 'Seriously Injured' in Car Accident
The Orlando Sentinel reported the crash occurred at 2:25 AM, and that emergency services were called at 2:28 AM .
Central Florida News also said the Florida Highway Patrol said "it was not an alcohol-related crash."
Tiger Woods, 33, drove his 2009 black Cadillac Escalade into a fire hydrant and tree on his neighbor's property. Woods' airbags did not deploy, likely meaning he was traveling less than 33 miles per hour. He was taken to Health Central Hospital for treatment.

New York Times media reporter Brian Stelter tweeted that FOX News first reported the news Friday at at 2:35 PM, interrupting regular coverage. CNN followed suit at 2:41 PM, and ESPN reported the news at 2:46 PM.
Also on Twitter, BNO News reported that WESH-TV said Tiger Woods was being treated for facial lacerations.
Shortly afterwards, CNBC Sports Reporter Darren Rovell tweeted at 3:30 PM that Tiger Woods agent said, "he is fine."
