Florida police, who have twice been turned away from Tiger Woods's home, have canceled Sunday's plans to speak to the golf great about his one-car accident outside the posh home Friday.

"The troopers went to the house to see if they could speak with Mr. Woods. Mr. Woods's attorney was present and told investigators that Mr. Woods was unavailable for an interview," FHP spokeswoman Kim Montes e-mails PEOPLE. "Mr. Woods's attorney provided the troopers with Mr. Woods's driver's license information, registration and current proof of insurance as required by Florida Law. The crash investigation is ongoing and charges are pending."

With the legal requirements fulfilled, his silence, coupled with the facts already known about the incident, are fueling speculation about the possibility of a heated, even physical, argument between the golfer and his wife, Elin Nordegren, preceding the accident.

Earlier, Montes said FHP investigations into minor collisions don't normally drag on for days, but "it's happened before."



"This is not the first time that we've gone back to get a statement from a driver ... We try and give the driver every opportunity to tell us their side of the story before we complete our investigation," she told the Associated Press.

Woods's SUV has been towed to a private yard with damage to the front end and both back-seat windows broken.

Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal is reporting elements of a 911 call made by a neighbor, who evidently heard the crash and "wanted help."

According to the transcript, the caller tells the 911 operator that "there's a man on the ground" and he appeared to be unconscious but breathing.

The call came in at 2:28 a.m. Friday and police arrived at 2:33 a.m., the Journal reports. Woods was taken to a hospital because of injuries to his face and then released.

The accident came two days after the National Enquirer published a story alleging that Woods had been seeing New York night club hostess Rachel Uchitel, and that they recently were together in Melbourne, where Woods competed in the Australian Masters.

Uchitel denies any relationship with Woods.
