Tiger Woods Injuries Caused by Wife Not Car Crash?

Golf legend Tiger Woods was in a minor car accident at his home on Friday, but it may not have been the crash that caused all his injuries. According to rumors going around, it was Tiger Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren Woods, who scratched up his face – not his car.


According to police reports from the scene, Tiger Woods reportedly crashed his car into a fire hydrant and then a tree at his home in Florida just after 2:00 AM. Woods was allegedly dragged from the car by his wife, Elin Woods, who told police she had used a golf club to smash out a window of the car to get to her husband. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office reported Tiger Woods was allegedly knocked unconscious for about six minutes after the crash. He was transported to the hospital with minor injuries and later released.

Several gossip sites are now reporting that not all of Tiger Wood’s injuries may have been caused by his weirdly bad driving. According to TMZ.com, one source reports some of the injuries to the golfer’s face were caused by his wife during a heated argument shortly before the accident. The couple were reportedly arguing over a National Enquirer story accusing Tiger Woods of cheating on his wife with Manhattan hostess Rachel Uchitel.

Uchitel, who lost her fiancé in the World Trade Center on 9/11, has reportedly denied any such affair. Rumor has also romantically linked Rachel Uchitel to Bones star David Boreanaz. Star Magazine claims Boreanaz slept with Uchitel while his wife, Jaime Bergman, was pregnant. So far no evidence has been produced to support those claims either.

Police did not discover any evidence of alcohol involved in the accident. Although rumors are flying Tiger Woods and his wife had a massive fight shortly before the accident, authorities on scene did not officially state anything regarding a domestic dispute in the police reports. TMZ.com, however, says Elin Woods told officers at the scene the two had been arguing.

The crash remains under investigation at this time. Police have so far been unsuccessful in their attempts to question Tiger Woods about the accident, but plan on trying again today.
