The Los Angeles sheriff has revealed that detectives have found the cause of Tiger Woods’ SUV crash last month but could not reveal the details due to unspecified privacy concerns. Woods had sustained serious injuries in the crash when the SUV he was driving struck a raised median and subsequently uprooted a tree on a downward stretch.
“A cause has been determined, the investigation has concluded,” Villanueva said. “We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel. There are 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.”
“We have all the contents of the black box, we’ve got everything. It’s completed, signed, sealed and delivered. However, we can’t release it without the permission of the people involved in the collision.” Villaneuva added.
Sheriff Alex Villanueva has come under criticism for saying that the crash was “purely an accident” and there were no signs of foul play. Woods said that he had no recollection of how the crash occurred and he couldn’t even remember driving. Woods was believed to be unconscious when the first witness had approached the SUV but officers later said that he was in shock and he could answer basic police questions soon after.
