Tiger Woods (45) was involved in a serious traffic accident on Tuesday 23 February. Los Angeles police reported
No brake tracks on site
It was first reported that he had to be cut loose from the wreck, but at a press conference this was denied. He was, however, taken out through the windshield of the vehicle using an ax, among other things.
Woods had to undergo several operations after the dramatic descent, and suffered serious injuries to both legs.
There were no brake tracks on site. Police believe that the car hit the center discount and was thrown out of the road before it went around several times.
Police have confirmed that Woods was wearing a seat belt and that the airbags were triggered. There should be no suspicion that he was driving under the influence of drugs.
– We have found a cause, and the investigation is now over
Several US media outlets, including ABC News and TMZ, are now reporting that the police investigation has led to a preliminary conclusion on the cause of the accident. Nevertheless, the police do not want to publish this until the family and the team around Woods have given the go-ahead, for reasons of privacy.
– We have found a cause, and the investigation is now over. There are some private circumstances in relation to releasing information about investigations, so we will ask Wood’s family if they will waive privacy. Then we will be able to release all information about the accident, confirms Villanueva.
Woods’ agent in Excel Sports, Mark Steinberg, has so far not answered an e-mail with questions about the result of the investigation, writes ABCNews.
