Tiger Woods' Reputed Lover Rachel Uchitel: 'Tiger And I Are Not Friends'

He later was released from Health Central Hospital in Ococee, Fla. after being treated for what the hospital and Woods' publicist described as "minor" injuries.

The sheriff's office departed the scene at 3:53 a.m. and turned over the case to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Could Tiger Woods Be Charged?

Investigators said alcohol was not involved. The Associated Press reported that the vehicle's airbags did not deploy.

Since the accident, police have talked of an ongoing investigation and said possible charges were "pending."

However, Florida legal experts told ABC News on Sunday that it appeared charges were unlikely.

Even so, besides the possibility of a resisting arrest charge stemming from any false statement to authorities, Woods could be charged with careless driving -- a civil infraction carrying a fine of less than $200 -- for hitting the fire hydrant and tree, they said.

Making charge less likely, they added, was the apparent absence of witnesses to say Woods actually was driving carelessly and the fact that accident occurred on an apparently private road not open to the public.

ABC News' Susan Donaldson James and Jason Stine contributed to this report.
