ORLANDO, Fla., Nov. 27 (UPI) -- Tiger Woods was released from a Florida hospital Friday several hours after crashing into a fire hydrant and tree, his agent said.
Marc Steinberg of IMG told USA Today the golf superstar was fine.
The Miami Herald reported a publicist for Woods said in a statement that the pro golfer "had been in a minor car accident," had been "treated and released" and was in good condition.
Woods was believed to have suffered facial injuries, the Herald said.
The accident occurred as Woods left his home about 2:25 a.m. It wasn't clear if there was anyone in the car with him, the Herald said.
The Florida Highway Patrol had initially described Woods as being seriously injured, FirstCoastNews.com reported. Emergency workers took him to Health Central Hospital.
Woods, 33, a child golf prodigy, has dominated the sport at the professional level for more than 10 years. He lives in Windermere near Orlando with his wife and children.
The highway patrol said Woods was at the wheel of a 2009 Cadillac Escalade luxury sport utility vehicle. He first hit the hydrant and then struck a tree on a neighbor's property.
