Tiger Woods cannot recall being behind the wheel at the time of the accident

Tiger Woods told authorities he didn’t know how the accident that only involved his vehicle didn’t even drive, USA Today said, citing a copy of the search warrant used by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to get the black box of the SUV in question.

“The agents asked how the collision occurred,” in his first statement. “The driver replied that he did not know and did not even remember driving … The driver was treated at the hospital for his injuries and asked again how the collision occurred. He repeated that he did not know and did not remember driving. “

The car’s black box contains data on speed and acceleration, braking sequence, changes in steering angle, and other instrumentation activities. A sheriff’s deputy said Wednesday that such an arrest warrant is common in Los Angeles County and is considered part of the investigation, even if it appears it was just an accident.

“We’re trying to determine if a crime has been committed,” said Sheriff Sheriff’s deputy John Schloegl. “If someone is involved in a road collision, we have to reconstruct the collision [para determinar] when there was reckless driving, when someone was on the phone or something. We determine if there was a crime. If there wasn’t a crime, we closed the case and it was an accident. “

The well-known 45-year-old golfer was seriously injured in an accident near the border between Rolling Hills Estates and Rancho Palos Verdes, California last week. Woods was the only occupant of the car who had been removed by fire fighters with the help of an extricator, rescued by paramedics from Los Angeles County, and taken to the local hospital. He underwent urgent surgery to treat multiple injuries to his right leg and underwent another procedure last Friday.

Tiger Woods (* 1975 in Cypress, California, USA) is one of the greatest representatives in the history of golf and has won 82 titles on the North American PGA racetrack and 15 majors. Socially, Woods played an important role in developing golf for the less involved classes, especially among minorities in the United States. In 2009, Tiger Woods made history again when Forbes magazine announced that he was the first multi-millionaire athlete to raise $ 1 billion in sponsorships and prizes.
