Looks like a shot in the dark to me. Hoping for a nice settlement out of court perhaps?

Nobody's fault here except the drunk.

Hmmm. Alcoholic who's going through rehab, working as a bartender and drives a Corvette. What could possibly go wrong? Not everyone can pull it off like Sam Malone.

Seriously, it's sad and I'm glad no innocent people were injured. However, another victim mentality story. Lawyer up Tiger.

Yup, like the bartender FORCED him to have those last couple of drinks, and FORCED him to get in the car and drive off...….And of course, it's the media's responsibility to mention that the drunk got into a "high powered sports car", just to sensationalize the story, when in reality, a VW would have killed him just as effectively.....

If there is an indication of deep pockets, the leeches will come out.

Sad and unfortunate, again the “shark pool” makes this all possible. They have taken years to perfect the idea of there are no accidents and someone other than the perpetrator is responsible. Only the lawyers win.

Not an indictment of the C5 Corvette or Tiger Woods.

Like stated before, glad no one else got hurt by someone's stupidity. If his family KNEW he was a drunk and had been through rehab, why on earth would they let him work at this place without trying to talk some sense into him about the temptations????? I don't like watching golf at all but I sure hope Tiger can get out of this mess. Not his fault at all.

Hopefully the lawsuit gets thrown out. At some point individual responsibility has to take over.

That would be nice, but I am sure there will be a settlement. Award the family for the stupid actions of 24 yo drunkard. Tiger, nor the Vette had anything to do with this, only the dead dumba** is to blame.

Counter sue the family for their negligence in not properly teaching their son how important wearing his seat belt was.
