Authorities reported that Tiger Woods was speeding and was seriously injured when he crashed into a sports truck in Southern California a few weeks ago.
The sheriff said the golf superstar was driving at 84 and 87 miles per hour (135-140 km/h) on downhill roads outside Los Angeles, with a speed limit of 45 mph (72 miles). Villanueva (Villanueva) on Wednesday.
That section of the highway is known for many accidents, and drivers are speeding and overtaking, so that there are emergency exits for out-of-control vehicles near the scene of the Woods crash.
Villanueva attributed the accident on February 23 to the speeding caused by Woods losing control of the wheels.
The detective did not seek a court order to collect blood samples from Woods, and Woods would have finally determined whether he had used drugs and alcohol. However, investigators did obtain authorization to search the data logger on the Genesis GV80 pickup truck in 2021 after the accident. The data logger was called the “black box.”
Woods is in Florida and he is recovering after several operations.
Woods, a native of Los Angeles, held his golf tournament in the area in February this year, the Riviera Country Club’s Genesis Invitational.
When he ran into a median at Rolling Hills Estates outside Los Angeles at about 7 am, he was driving a truck assigned to the game. The truck drove across two lanes and uprooted a tree.
