Famous US golfer Tiger Woods had a car accident in Los Angeles on 23 February. In addition, the cause of the accident is excessive speed.
Los Angeles District Sheriff Alex Villanueva held a press conference. Woods traveled 140 kilometers on the road with a speed limit of 72 kilometers per hour. The sheriff said that because of this, he could not take the corner and lost control of the vehicle.
According to Villanueva’s reviews, it turned out that there was no use of brakes in the accident. Therefore, he said, they thought that Woods might have accidentally pressed the accelerator pedal instead of the brake while taking the corner.
Villanueva stated that Woods’ seat belt was fastened at the time of the accident and the airbags were deployed. He said that since there was no evidence that the famous golfer took drugs or alcohol before the accident, there was no need for a blood test.
Villanueva said there was no reason why Woods had been fined or prosecuted for the accident.
Tiger Woods also thanked the emergency rescue teams in a statement he made on his Twitter account. “I will continue to heal and focus on my family. I thank everyone for the support and encouragement shown to me during this very difficult time.” He quoted his statement.
The 45-year-old famous sportsman was driving an SUV type vehicle he used. Tiger Woods hit the median on Los Angeles’ Hawthorne Boulevard on February 23, and went astray.
Paramedics and Firefighters barely pulled Tiger Woods out of his vehicle. Medical teams trained the famous golfer to the hospital. He is under treatment for fractures in his right shin and calf as well as ankle and foot.
