Tiger Woods’ Car Traveled A Distance Further Than A Football Field Before Finally Coming To A Stop (PIC)
The first Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy who arrived on scene after Tiger Woods was involved in a rollover car crash said he “lucid and calm” and didn’t realize the severity of his injuries at the time of the accident.
He probably did not realize how lucky he was and just how far his car had gone before crashing either.
A photo from up above shows how Woods’ vehicle traveled 400 feet — more than football field — before it came to a crashing end.
Deputy Carlos Gonzalez told Craig Melvin of NBC’s “TODAY” show the first thing he noticed was a vehicle about 40 feet off the roadway.
“Immediately the neighbor that called 911 told me, ‘Deputy, I think someone is still inside the vehicle,'” he said. “So I run over, and I’m able to get my upper body through the windshield.”
“My first role as a first responder is to assess the passenger, the occupants, of the vehicle and I want to keep them calm as well,” Gonzalez said. “So I ask him, ‘Can you tell me your first name?’ He looked at me and he said, ‘Tiger.’”
“And it took me a half second, but I saw his face and I thought, ‘Oh yeah, you’re Tiger Woods,’” he continued. “But of course, I’ve got a job to do, so I immediately went into assessment questions to gauge what his condition was in and what his mental state was at the time.”
The deputy said Woods was unable to stand on his own and appeared to be unaware of “how gravely injured he was,” citing a “mixture of adrenaline and shock.”
Gonzalez said that there was no evidence of impairment and that he was unaware of any reports.
