The cause of golf legend Tiger Woods car crash was revealed by the LA county sheriff’s office on Wednesday. The golfer was speeding at 84 to 87 miles per hour in a 45-mph zone.
“There was no evidence of braking throughout the collision,” said the county sheriff. “It is speculated and believed that Tiger Woods inadvertently hit the accelerator instead of the brake pedal causing that 99% grading on the accelerator pedal.”
Detectives did not seek search warrants for Woods’ blood samples in order to screen for drugs or alcohol. This caused critics to suggest that the golfer received special treatment, something the Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva firmly denied.
“There was no signs of impairment,” said Villanueva. “Our primary concern at the scene of the collision was his safety. This is when you need to shift gears and make sure the person can survive and receives medical care.”
Tiger Woods posted a statement on Twitter, thanking the team who rescued him at the crash.
