Following a bone-shattering single-car rollover crash on Feb. 23, new evidence obtained from the “black box” inside the vehicle Tiger Woods’ drove off the road reveals concerning information about the incident. The golfer reportedly did not apply pressure to the brakes before the incident and did not let up on the gas.
The early reports indicate that Woods did not decelerate and try to prevent the crash once he lost control of the Hyundai SUV but that the golf legend was not speeding before the wreck, of which he has no memory. According to TMZ, Woods was reportedly driving “normally” but the evidence indicates that he was accelerating and speeding before losing control. Tiger was recovering from back surgery at the time of the crash and suffered serious leg injuries. Law enforcement sources say he also suffered a “big gash” on his chin from the impact.
Some crash investigators speculate that Woods may have fallen asleep at the wheel, but Sheriff Alex Villanueva said there was no evidence he was impaired by prescription drugs or alcohol.
