The cause of Tigers Woods’ car crash last month has been determined, however, the public won’t be getting that information.
The Los Angeles County sheriff said that detectives would not release details of the crash on Wednesday, citing “unspecified privacy concerns for the golf star.”
“We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel,” Sheriff Villanueva said. “There’s some privacy issues on releasing information on the investigation so we’re going to ask them if they waive the privacy and then we will be able to do a full release on all the information regarding the accident.”
The 45-year-old was driving a Genesis SUV when he suddenly drove over the median and crossed two oncoming lanes and hit a tree on a downhill part of the road in Rolling Hills Estates, which is just outside of Los Angeles.
“We have all the contents of the black box, we’ve got everything,” Villanueva said. “It’s completed, signed, sealed, and delivered. However, we can’t release it without the permission of the people involved in the collision.”
Villanueva called the crash “purely an accident.”
Woods is still recovering from having surgery.
