After a back-and-forth about whether or not the investigation details of Tiger Woods’ car crash were going to be released to the public, TMZ obtained information earlier this week about the accident which was shortly followed by LA County Sheriff Alex Villaneuva holding a press conference sharing the findings.
Excessive speed was determined the sole cause of the accident, and initial reports stated that Woods was traveling at 83 MPH at the time of the crash, which took place in a 45 MPH speed zone.
The collision report, which was obtained by USA Today, revealed several other details involved in the accident.
According to the report, a pharmaceutical bottle was found in a backpack at the scene of the crash. The bottle was empty and unmarked. Woods was arrested on DUI charges back in 2017 with a toxicology report showing that there were five drugs in his system at the time of his arrest.
Woods announced on January 19, about one month prior to the crash, that he had recently undergone what was the fifth back surgery of his career.
The report also stated that Woods mistakenly thought that he was in Florida when he was interviewed by law enforcement at the hospital shortly after the crash.
The LA County Sheriff’s Department has stated that there was “no evidence of impairment” at the time of the accident and it did not seek a warrant to obtain Woods’ blood for any sort of testing to determine if he was under the influence of anything after the crash.
Law enforcement also told TMZ that a warrant wasn’t acquired to check Woods’ cell phone to determine if he was calling or texting someone at the time of the crash.
Woods shared a statement regarding the investigation into his accident on Wednesday afternoon thanking all of the law enforcement and paramedics involved at the time of his crash and throughout the investigation.
