Caged Tiger: Florida Highway Patrol Says Woods 'At Fault' In Crash

ORLANDO, Florida (CNN) -- The Florida Highway Patrol announced Tuesday that golfer Tiger Woods will be issued a careless driving citation for the crash outside his home last week.

Woods, 33, struck a fire hydrant and a tree with his 2009 Cadillac SUV in his luxury neighborhood near Windermere, Florida, early Friday morning, police said.

"Mr. Woods is at fault in the crash," Maj. Cindy Williams of the highway patrol said at an afternoon news conference.

She said careless driving is a "moving violation." Upon conviction, it could result in a fine of $164 and four points on a driving record, she said.

Woods has satisfied the requirements of Florida law regarding motor vehicle accidents, she said.

"With the issuance of this citation, the Florida Highway Patrol has completed its investigation into this matter," Williams said.
