Tiger Woods’ Thanksgiving didn’t have the happiest of endings this year.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the golfing legend was admitted to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Florida, in serious condition on Friday morning after getting in a car crash.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Woods was leaving the driveway of his Isleworth home in his Cadillac Escalade at about 2:25 a.m. when he hit a fire hydrant, then struck a tree on his neighbor’s property.

The accident was apparently a low-speed crash, since the airbags in his vehicle failed to deploy.

Police sources tell TMZ that alcohol was not a factor.
