Now the cause has been determined – thanks to the black box

The circumstances surrounding the car accident have been both unclear and unknown – until now.

After six weeks of investigation, the cause of the incident has now been determined with the help of the car’s black box. And the biggest underlying cause is excessive speed.

The maximum speed allowed on the road Woods drove at was 70 km / h, but just before the crash he was up to a full 140 km / h.

The car’s black box has been able to show that the car was traveling at 120 km / h when Woods crashed into the tree.

Woods will not be charged with any crime

But despite the speeding, the golf star will not be prosecuted for any crime, the sheriff of Los Angeles stated at a press conference on Wednesday.

– Speeding is a violation … but there is no evidence of negligent driving. For reckless driving, you need several violations, not just speeding. No one saw the speeding either, says the sheriff Alex Villanueva.

No alcohol tests were taken

According to the police No samples were taken from Woods to see if he was under the influence of drugs or alcohol at the time of the accident.

There was no “probable cause” to test him for it.
