LPGA's Williams recovering after crash

Golfer Kim Williams was recovering today after breaking her collarbone and injuring her knee in a car wreck.

Williams was hurt Friday, Jan. 12, hours after she shot an even-par 72 in the first round of the season-opening YourLife Vitamins LPGA Classic at Grand Cypress Resort. She was driving on a two-lane road when an oncoming driver had a seizure, swerved into her lane and hit her head-on, police said.

The 37-year-old golfer was in stable condition at the Orlando Regional Medical Center after surgery Saturday on her right knee. It was not immediately clear when she would be released. Williams said she expects to be sidelined until at least April.

In 1994, Williams was hit in the neck by a stray bullet while walking into a drugstore during the week of an LPGA tournament in Ohio. The bullet didn't cause major injury and she finished 10th at the Toledo Classic the next week.

Williams enjoyed one of her best seasons in 2000, finishing in the top 10 three times, including fourth in the Oldsmobile Classic.
