I hope he wasn't under the influence. He was recovering from back surgery. He may have been on painkillers.

From the looks of the accident site from news choppers, he had to be going very fast.

On the golf course: Tiger's a good driver.

1:19 PM PT -- TMZ has learned ... Tiger was staying at a hotel where a major network television show was being shot. Production sources tell TMZ, when the director arrived just before 7 AM, Tiger was driving his SUV very fast as he was leaving the property and almost hit the director's car. The director was shaken enough to tell production staff about it after he parked.

That area is no joke. It has a fairly harsh bend and if there is even a bit of fog, the roads become extremely slick. Early morning, extreme speed, impacted visuals, slick road, bend in the road . . . quickly adds up to a fairly serious crash.

Apparently he was supposed to be part of a TV special with Drew Brees and Justin Herbert.

Regardless he should consider getting a personal driver I would think the perks of being rich would have someone else drive you elsewhere.

Or if they insist on driving, drive at reasonable speeds. It's not that hard.

I grew up right in the area, in fact the crash happened just down the hill from my old high school.

Going downhill on Hawthorne Blvd. where he was, people tend to get going too fast and you do have to navigate a few modest bends in the road which of course can be more challenging at night, if unfamiliar with the road or if the very regular fog that occurs there has set in.

The fog in particular can be a real problem, but the accident here appears to be speed related as the pictures of the car not long after it crashed are in sunlight meaning it was not foggy most likely.

Lots of rumors going around such as possibility he left the hotel (Terranea Resort) upset and driving fast and also that perhaps he is looking at an amputation. I really hope none of those are correct as I have always been a big fan of Tiger and he is the pride of So Cal.

I won’t lie
First thing that popped into my head when saw the pics and news was Kobe.

Looks like he should make it, which at least is a positive.

I saw some footage of them hauling the wreckage away. There were several pieces of luggage set aside. Looks like he was in a hurry to make a flight.

He was in a hurry to get to Riviera, where he was scheduled for a 7:30 lesson with Drew Brees. It was around 7 at the time of the crash and he was still in the RPV area. Needless to say, he wasn't going to be close to being on time. It appears that he was frustrated with running late and was trying to haul ass to get to Pacific Palisades. So far, no evidence that he was impaired by anything, even though of course there's a lot of that speculation out there. If I had to guess, I don't think he was impaired by anything, just driving recklessly.

I also heard the description of his injuries and what they did in the surgery, and it's pretty gruesome. The first place my brain went to was Alex Smith. As long as he doesn't suffer the type of infections that Smith did, I don't think it will turn out that bad. Still, listen to this from an article I found...

Dr. Anish Mahajan, the chief medical officer at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, said Woods shattered the tibia and fibula bones of his lower right leg in multiple locations. Those injuries were stabilized with a rod in the tibia. Additional injuries to the bones in the foot and ankle required screws and pins, Mahajan said in a statement released on Woods' Twitter account late Tuesday night.

I won't put it past Tiger to return to the Tour and play highly competitive golf again. But at this point, he appears lucky to be alive, so if he can get out of the hospital, walk normally and enjoy his life and his kids' lives, that's a win.

Actually, a statement was released on his Twitter, and the direct quote from Dr. Mahajan about the injuries is worth reading:

I may be in the minority. He's recovering from back surgery. I was hoping he wasn't under the influence of pain killers There was an incident where he was arrested for having them in his system while driving. His life being in danger didn't cross my mind. After seeing footage of the accident and damage done to the SUV I thought he was lucky to have survived. I wish him a speedy recovery.

This is the procedure my daughter had when she suffered a major compound fracture in a skiing accident several years ago. It's an intricate procedure that takes several hours to perform. Longest 6 hours of my life.
