The report details how the golfer tried to get up several times, but the officer made him stay on the ground.
Windermere police arrived at the crash site before the Florida Highway Patrol, Orange County Sherriff’s deputies and rescue workers.
In the Windermere police report, the responding officer wrote:
“I arrived on the scene at 0233 hours. Upon my arrival, I observed a black male lying in the roadway not moving, covered in a blanket and resting his head on a pillow. There was a white female kneeling over the subject (later identified to be the wife: Elin Nordegren).”
The report also says: “Mr. Woods periodically attempted to get up; for his safety, I kept him lying down, using the pillow to immobilize his cervical spinal column.”
Five minutes after the Windermere police officer arrived, an Orange County Sheriff’s deputy and Fire Rescue Engine 35 made it to the scene.
Windermere police observed that the front passenger door of Tiger’s Cadillac SUV was jammed shut and there was $235 in cash stored in the vehicle, which was still running.
The report also confirms there was a golf cart at the scene and “two golf clubs (irons) lying on the ground” next to the cart.
Elin used the clubs to break the back windows of the car. And the report notes there was glass on the driveway adjacent to the broken window.
