What Really Happened The Night Of Tiger Woods' Accident

tigersmashcar200.jpg LOS ANGELES, California (California) - Daily Beast reporter Gerald Posner appeared on the Today Show this morning to discuss details about Tiger Woods' accident, and he has the scoop straight from two insiders close to the situation.

According to Posner's sources, the drama began when Tiger told Elin that the National Enquirer was going to run a story about his rumored affair with Rachel Uchitel. He promised Elin that the story was completely false, but Elin was skeptical, so the day before Thanksgiving Tiger put his mistress in touch with his wife and the two had a 30 minute chat. After the phone conversation, Elin apparently believed Tiger and Rachel's relationship was platonic.

However, on Thanksgiving day, Elin got more details about the Enquirer's story, and she started arguing with Tiger. Tiger wasn't in the mood to go through a verbal boxing match, so he reportedly took an Ambien to fall asleep. Elin then looked through Tiger's phone, where she found a text from Rachel that read, "You are the only one I've loved."

Just after 1am on November 27, Elin texted Rachel from Tiger's phone and wrote, "I miss you ... When are we seeing each other again?" Rachel texted back, at which point Elin called her and said something to the effect of, "I knew it was you," and a very surprised Rachel responded, "Oh f*ck!" and hung up.

An understandably livid Elin woke Tiger up by screaming at him and hitting him on the chest and arms with her fists. After Tiger was jerked out of his Ambien haze, Elin chased him from the house with a golf club. Tiger then ran outside the house and sped off in the family's black Cadillac Escalade, but he didn't get very far - after a few seconds of panic, he smashed into a fire hydrant and a tree, causing a significant amount of damage to the SUV.

According to Posner, no one really knows how the rear windows of the Escalade were broken, but one source says Tiger lied to the police and said Elin smashed them in an attempt to save him from the wreck.

One of the sources says Elin will wait for Tiger to finish sex rehab before making a final decision the divorce, and Us Weekly is reporting that the blonde beauty visited her adulterous husband at the Pine Grove rehab clinic in Hattiesburg, Mississippi over the weekend.
