Tiger Woods had a series of crashes

Tiger Woods had a series of crashes

Tiger Woods was driving so erratically before his mysterious car crash that he careered into bushes and hedges, up two concrete curbs and swerved across a whole street before ploughing into a fire hydrant and a tree.

The pinball trajectory of his Cadillac was revealed in a police sketch of the incident which shows the golfing superstar had a total of three collisions, not two as previously thought.

As he pulled out of his drive at 2.25am he mounted a concrete curb onto a grass verge. He then tried to turn left onto a road but went all the way across, up another curb and into some hedges.

SUV then careered left across an oncoming lanes on to his neighbour's lawn where he hit the fire hydrant, before crossing the neighbour's drive and colliding with a tree.

The bizarre series of collisions will raise further questions over what caused Woods to crash.

As he recovers from the wounds to his face and reputation the superstar golfer, is also facing a hefty hit to his wallet, being forced to renegotiate his prenuptial agreement, which could lead to his wife receiving a record breaking $300 million (£180 million) in any future divorce.

Woods and his wife Elin Nordegren, 29, are desperately trying to save their marriage and have been undergoing marriage counselling sessions several times daily at their home in Orlando, Florida.

When the couple married on Oct. 5, 2004, in a wedding at the exclusive Sandy Lane resort in Barbados, Mrs Nordegren signed an agreement which staggered payments and was initially modest by A-list celebrity standards.

It is said to have given her the right to $20 million (£12 million) after 10 years of marriage.

In light of Woods' recent "transgressions" the amount has been increased to $75 million (£45 million) and the period reduced to seven years.

But experts said Mrs Nordegren could ultimately end up with one of the biggest settlements in celebrity history, dwarfing the $150 million (£90 million) paid by basketball star Michael Jordan to his former wife Juanita.

Mrs Nordegren will also sign a nondisclosure form that will prevent her from ever telling her story.

Woods faced further public opprobrium yesterday from the fellow golfer who introduced him to his wife.

Mrs Nordegern was working as an au pair for Jesper Parnevik, a fellow Swede, when she met Woods at the 2001 British Open.

Parnevik, 44, said: "I'm kind of filled with sorrow for Elin since me and my wife are at fault for hooking her up with him, and we probably thought he was a better guy than he is.

"I would probably have to apologise to her and hope she uses a driver next time instead of a three-iron."
