However, the Los Angeles County authorities have released a detailed report on Wednesday revealing that the golf legend was traveling at 84 to 87mph in a 45mph zone.
While revealing the actual cause of accident during a press conference, Sheriff Alex Villanueva said that Woods crashed because he was driving at an unsafe speed, more than half the speed he was at when he was going his fastest, when his car hit the tree.
Los Angeles County sheriff Alex Villanueva added, “The first contact was with the center median, from there then crossed into the opposing lane of traffic, hit the curb, hit a tree, and there were several rollovers during that process.”
“This is purely an accident,” the sheriff said. “We do not contemplate any charges whatsoever in this crash. This remains an accident. An accident is not a crime.”
Woods, a 15-time major winner and five-time Masters Champion, is currently recovering at home after a series of operations on the severe injuries to his right leg and will unfortunately be miss the Masters Tournament 2021.
