Tiger Woods issues statement about car accident

Tiger Woods released the following statement on his Web site Sunday regarding his car crash early Friday morning. As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and
sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I'm
pretty sore.

This situation is my fault, and it's obviously embarrassing to my
family and me. I'm human and I'm not perfect. I will certainly make
sure this doesn't happen again.
This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way.
Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and
malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me
are irresponsible.
The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife,
Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She
was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely
This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our
family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we
have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my
family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people
can be.
