Immediately after the crash, it was Woods' wife, Elin Nordegren, who helped free him from the car, People reports. "When [police] got there, he was laying in the street," Windermere Police Chief Daniel Saylor told the magazine. "His wife had broken out the back window with a golf club to get into the vehicle and pull him out."
