Tiger Woods crash reportedly caused by excessive speeding

Legendary Golfer, Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods’s car accident was reportedly caused by excessive speeding.

According to a TMZ source, Woods was driving 83 MPH in a 45 zone at the time of the crash. 

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office is expected to confirm this on Wednesday as Woods has waived his privacy right and gave permission for the report to be public.

The outlet reports that the police say speeding was the sole cause of the crash. However, they did not get a warrant to check Woods’s cellphone to see if he was on a call or texting at the time of the crash. This is something that is usually done in car accident investigations.

The black box reportedly showed that Woods actually accelerated at the time of the crash. And that when he lost control the SUV actually gained speed.

No charges will be filed against him.

Woods was involved in a serious one-car rollover accident in Los Angeles County in February.

He suffered comminuted open fractures in his right leg from the accident. This means the bone was shattered in at least two places and broke through the skin.
