Tiger Wood in a fatal accident



The 45-year-old golf icon sustained severe leg injuries when his car collided with a kerb, then a tree, and rolled multiple times in Los Angeles on Monday morning, near Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes.

No other vehicles were involved in the accident. Law enforcement officials have stated that there is no evidence suggesting that Woods was under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the crash. Sheriff Alex Villanueva mentioned during a livestreamed event that impairment was ruled out, indicating that there might not be any criminal charges despite the ongoing investigation.

However, investigators may seek warrants to obtain a blood sample to conclusively rule out the presence of alcohol or drugs. They could also request warrants to examine Woods’ phone records to determine if he was driving distracted, as well as retrieve data from the vehicle’s event data recorder or “black box” to ascertain his speed.

Woods, who has previously sought treatment for prescription medication issues, was driving alone when his car crossed into oncoming lanes and overturned several times, causing significant injuries to his right leg that necessitated surgery.

Deputy Carlos Gonzalez, the first responder at the scene, mentioned that he occasionally catches motorists exceeding 80mph in the downhill section of the 45mph zone where the crash occurred, and accidents there are not uncommon.

Regarding Woods’ awareness of his injuries, Deputy Gonzalez stated that Woods did not mention anything about his condition, suggesting that he might not have been fully aware of the extent of his injuries at the time, possibly due to a combination of adrenaline and shock.

Joe Giacalone, a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and retired New York police sergeant, remarked that it was premature for Sheriff Villanueva to classify the incident as an accident just one day after it occurred. Giacalone emphasized the importance of conducting a blood test, as some substances might not be detectable through observation alone.

Woods, a 15-time major champion, underwent significant surgery and is currently recovering from his injuries at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, where he is said to be awake, responsive, and recuperating in his hospital room, according to a statement from his TGR foundation.
