According to a report, investigators working to determine the cause of the Tiger Woods crash obtained data stored in the “black box” of the luxury SUV he was driving.
The Los Angeles County Police Department implemented a search warrant to collect information, which can show the vehicle’s speed prior to collision and whether its brakes have been applied. He told USA Today.
“We are trying to determine if a crime has been committed,” said John Schweigle, deputy sheriff of news outlets.
“If someone is involved in a traffic collision then we have to rebuild the traffic collision. If there is any reckless driving, if there is someone on their cell phone or something like that. If there is no crime, we close the case, and it was a normal traffic collision.” “.
Woods was driving a 2021 Genesis GV80 alone when he veered through the middle on Hawthorne Street in Rancho Palos Verdes, pulled off the road and collided with a tree.
The legendary golfer broke several bones in his lower right leg and is still recovering in hospital.
“To me, this is like a classic case of sleeping behind the wheel, because the curves of the road and his vehicle are traveling in a straight direction,” Jonathan Cherney, a consultant who acts as an expert witness in court cases, told news outlets.
Felix Lee, an accident reconstruction expert, told the port: “My feeling was that speed was not a big problem. It was just some kind of inattention that caused the pavement strike.”
