Tiger Woods Was Excessively Speeding Prior to His Severe Accident


April 14, 2021

LOS ANGELES, CA - Law enforcement authorities have reported Tiger Woods was driving almost 90 mph, which was twice the legal speed limit.  The report states that Mr. Woods was driving on a stretch of road when he lost control of his SUV and crashed leaving him seriously injured. 

Sheriff Alex Villanueva stated that the accident was caused by excessive speed and his inability to negotiate the curve.  It was determined by accident investigators that Mr. Woods was driving between 84 to 87 mph on a road with a posted speed limit of 45 mph.  The road also has a particularly bad reputation for car wrecks caused by excessive speeding due to the slope of the roadway.

Captain James Powers stated that there were no skid marks or any other evidence that showed Mr. Woods tried to slow down.  The investigators believe Mr. Woods accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the SUV's brake pedal.  Fortunately, Mr. Woods was wearing a seat belt and the SUV’s airbags deployed.

Authorities stated that there was no evidence of intoxication or distracted driving.  Therefore, the officers did not have probable cause to get warrants to check Mr. Wood's cellphone or draw his blood to test for drug or alcohol intoxication.  

No traffic tickets were issued to Mr. Woods.  The Sheriff stated that Mr. Woods permitted him and other law enforcement agencies to provide details about the crash to the public. 

Mr. Woods is currently in Florida and is recovering from his multiple accident-related surgeries, including a shattered tibia and multiple fractures to his fibula bones in his lower right leg.
