Woods, the No. 1 golfer in the world, suffered facial lacerations when his sports utility vehicle struck a fire hydrant and a tree around 2:25 a.m., according to the police report. He was treated at Health Central Hopsital in Ocoee, Fla., and was released in good condition, a Woods spokesman told the Associated Press. Woods's agent, Mark Steinberg, said in an email to CNBC that the golfer "is fine."
Alcohol was not involved in the incident, the police report said.
It is not clear whether Woods, 33, will be able to compete next week in the Chevron World Challenge in Thousand Oaks, Calif., a tournament that benefits Woods's eponymous foundation and which he annually hosts.
Woods spent the latter half of 2008 rehabilitating his left knee after undergoing reconstructive surgery following his victory in that year's United States Open at Torrey Pines. He returned to the PGA Tour in February of this year and won six times, though he was shut out in the major championships.
Woods, who has won 14 professional major titles, trails Jack Nicklaus's record by four.
