Tiger Woods suffered facial lacerations after being involved in a car accident outside his Florida home Friday morning.

Woods, 33, pulled out of his driveway in his 2009 Cadillac SUV about 2:25 a.m. when he struck a fire hydrant, and then drove into a tree at his neighbor's property, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

His airbags did not deploy (the Sentinel points out that this means the vehicle was traveling under 33 mph).

According to CNN, his wife, Elin Nordegren, used her husband's golf clubs to rescue him.

He was taken to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Fla. 

His rep said the accident was "minor" and that Woods was "admitted, treated and released today in good condition."

No other information about his condition has been released.

Officials are investigating the crash. It is not clear whether Woods or anyone else will be charged. The accident did not appear to have been alcohol-related, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

In February, Woods and wife Elin welcomed their second child, a boy, Charlie. Their first child, Sam Alexis, was born in 2007
