Report: Elin Woods Fight Led to Tiger Woods Car Accident; Golfer's Wife Caused Injuries

by at . Comments

Tiger Woods' alleged affair with another woman - rumored to be Rachel Uchitel - may have sparked a fight with his wife, Elin Woods, that led to his car accident.

Woods did not suffer facial lacerations from a car accident, but rather from his wife Elin, according to a conversation the golf legend had Friday after the crash.

Tiger has yet to be interviewed by the Florida Highway Patrol, but apparently told a non-law enforcement type (who TMZ does not name) what went down.

The story goes like this: Elin Woods confronted him about reports that he was seeing another woman a story that we reported yesterday (see above link).

The argument got heated and Elin scratched up Tiger's face.

At that point, Tiger made a break for it, trying to escape via his Cadillac SUV, but Elin Woods followed behind him in hot pursuit - with golf club in hand!

Did Tiger Woods' car accident stem from a fight with Elin?

As he drove away, Elin struck the vehicle several times with the club, at which point Woods became "distracted" and thought the vehicle was stopped.

He looked to see what had happened, and his SUV hit a fire hydrant and then his neighbor's tree. This took place about 2:20 a.m. Friday morning.

Good thing Elin Woods had the golf club, because it helped him escape.

At least according to People and E!, which report that Mrs. Woods smashed out the SUV's back window to free Tiger, who was in and out of consciousness.

The source also claims Woods was taking prescription pain medication for an injury, which may explain why he seemed a bit "out of it" at the scene.

Tiger Woods will be fine after the crash ultimately suffered only minor injuries ... whether Elin Woods really inflicted them is another story.

** Update: Uchitel admitted to TMZ that she has met Tiger before, but has NEVER slept with him. She says the "sources" that spoke to the National Enquirer were each paid $25,000 for their story.

If it was any one else, even understanding how someone could take it their, If it was one of us,someone would have gone to jail, for domestic violence, meaning his wife Elin,I can understand that kind of anger, but is it okay to harm someone if they cheat?? No it's not, but not excusing Tiger actions either, it's all bad...

Steve, you are pretty clueless, Elin was no supermodel in Europe or anywhere else.She is only 5'4" now where on earth would there be a 5'4" supermodel??? She did a small amount of catalog work when she was a teen in Sweden and never made it any more than that. She's really pretty homely.

Its no one business what Tiger did. He cheated big deal...from Frank Sinatra to Shaq all cheat. When you are famous with money and away from your family these things happen. Necessarily not right away maybe over time or peer pressure. I bet there was other golfers doing exactly the same thing. Feeding him by saying he won't get caught cause they don't get caught! 3 sides to the story...so far only 1 as been told!

Tiger Woods is a talented Golfer, however he is HUMAN. Made a big mistake, like Us MEN do, by not being smarter like Women. He is under the microscope like all big time sportsman. Like Koby, Micheal, and others. Oooh Yea! What about Bill......Clinton. The President. Wives have some responsibility in a marraige also to keep their husbands Happy. Raise the children YES, that is your JOB. His (TIGERS) job is to play golf and add to the Millions that he had before he Married you. So We MEN need to get some damn balls and quit being BITCH ass MEN. Women are doing dirt also. Just not getting caught. We MEN are letting Women control (US) more and more. WHY? WHY do women want other women??? This World is messed up.
