Tiger Woods hurt in car crash outside his house

The top golfer of the world, Eldrick Tont 'Tiger' Woods or famously known as Tiger Woods has been treated in hospital after being hurt in a car accident outside his home on Friday in Florida.

Woods, 33, crashed his 2009 Cadillac SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) in Isleworth near Orlando in the early hours.

It happened after he pulled out of his driveway at 2:25am (local time), authorities said. The accident was not alcohol-related, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Woods, 33, started driving along the road when his car struck a fire hydrant and then hit a tree. He then was taken to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee following the incident.

Early reports said the star had been seriously injured in the crash. But later it emerged he had only suffered cuts to his face and was released from hospital after treatment.

A joint statement from the hospital and Woods' office said: "He was admitted, treated and released in good condition" after being in a 'minor' car crash.

The FHP said the crash was still under investigation, and charges were pending. But it added that the crash was not alcohol-related.

The airbags in the car did not deploy during the accident because he was travelling so slowly, police said.  Airbags typically do not open if a vehicle is travelling at less than 33mph.
