Investigation Complete: New Details on Woods Accident


Excessive speed was the cause of the momentous car accident involving golf superstar Tiger Woods. This was announced by the responsible sheriff in Los Angeles County, Alex Villanueva, on Wednesday.

According to this, Woods is said to have been traveling at up to 87 miles per hour (140 km / h) at the end of February before he got off the road with his SUV and hit a tree.

“The predominant factor in this traffic accident was driving at an unsafe speed given the road conditions and the subsequent inability to turn,” said Villanueva. “The estimated first impact speed was 84 to 87 miles per hour.”

Police investigations had been completed last week. However, details were not disclosed at this time due to concerns about the privacy of the 15-time major winner.

Woods has now been released from the hospital

Woods suffered serious leg injuries in a car accident near Los Angeles on February 23. He was traveling alone on a road notorious for accidents when his SUV crashed into a tree and then rolled over several times. The Californian doesn’t have to fear charges of reckless driving.

Woods first underwent an intricate operation at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center. After being transferred to Cedars Sinai Medical Center for further treatment, he was able to leave the hospital almost three weeks ago.
