Woods released from hospital

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Tiger Woods has been released from a Florida hospital, where he was taken after a car accident early today.

Authorities say his car struck a hydrant and a tree near his mansion in a gated waterfront community.

Although the Highway Patrol described his injuries as serious, a Woods spokesman says he was treated and released in good condition.

The highway patrol says the crash is still under investigation, and charges are pending. However, the highway patrol said the crash was not alcohol-related.
