The single-vehicle accident occurred about 2:25 a.m. in Windermere, a suburb of Orlando, according to police.
Woods pulled out of his driveway in a 2009 Cadillac SUV and struck a fire hydrant, then a tree, according to an incident report from the Florida highway patrol in Orange County.
Police Chief Daniel Saylor said two Windermere police officers were the first to arrive on the scene.
“There was Tiger Woods laying on the ground in front of the vehicle with his wife over him rendering first aid,” he told reporters.
“He was in and out of consciousness with lacerations to his upper and lower lip,” Saylor said. “He was mumbling but didn’t say anything coherent.”
Woods’ wife, Elin Nordegren, told the police she was inside the house when she heard the accident. She said she went outside and used a golf club to break out the rear window of the vehicle, then pulled him from the SUV.
“According to the officers, yes, she was very upset,” he said in response to a question.
