Tiger Woods had a serious car accident on February 23, but the cause of the crash was never released. Today, March 31, investigators say that they have concluded their research into why the accident happened.
But the L.A. County Sheriff, Alex Villanueva, won’t release any of the details about the crash. In a press conference, he says that to protect the privacy of Tiger Woods, there won’t be any details released.
So, while the investigation has been finished, the public will continue to wait on the cause of the crash. During his short meeting with the media, he gave his short reasoning as to why he won’t share details.
“A cause has been determined, the investigation has concluded,” the L.A. Sheriff said. He continues the statement, saying that Tiger Woods needs to give the go-ahead before information can begin circulating.
“We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel. There’s some privacy issues on releasing information on the investigation. So we’re going to ask them if they waive the privacy, and then we will be able to do a full release on all the information regarding the accident.”
The County Sheriff did not provide any further explanation about Tiger Woods’ car crash. The people hoping to know the exact reason for the crash might be disappointed.
The Cause of Tiger Woods’ Car Crash Is Still Not Public Information
When the crash happened, some facts were brought to light by the County Sheriff. The public was under the notion that Tiger Woods never used his brakes as he spun off the road. Additionally, the evidence seemed to show that he never released the gas pedal either.
Altogether, this evidence appears to show that Tiger Woods never tried to evade the crash. The police department handling the investigation says that he was not speeding. But, according to reports, he was actually speeding just before the crash.
That can be explained with a simple justification – Tiger Woods could have hit the wrong pedal. In the heat of the moment, the adrenaline might have caused him to hit the gas instead of the break.
Once paramedics got to the scene, the pro golfer told them that he did not recall what happened. Again, this can be explained away as a concussion occurring because of the crash.
Nonetheless, in the immediate aftermath, the Sheriff’s department never obtained a warrant to draw his blood. From the beginning, they were also vehemently denying any wrongdoing causing the accident.
When reports first surfaced, it was clear just how serious Tiger Woods’ injuries were. He had comminuted open fractures on his upper and lower tibia and fibula in his right leg. Thankfully, the doctors at Harbor-UCLA were able to stabilize him and ultimately save his life.
Now, Tiger Woods is at home tending to his injuries and working on recovering. Hopefully, all is well with him, and he can return to full health soon.
