Last February, word got out quickly that fan favorite PGA Golfer Tiger Woods had been in a devastating rollover car accident in Ranchos Palms Verdes, California. The accident was a single car collision and Woods was the only person in the vehicle. The front of his SUV was beyond repair but the interior remained intact.
Woods was then taken to the Harbor UCLA Medical Center to evaluate his injuries by ambulance. The incident was under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department which said the car “sustained major damage.” Tiger’s agent later stated that Woods had sustained multiple leg injuries and had surgery for non-life-threatening injuries. Woods had apparently suffered compound fractures in both legs. The Sheriffs Department also stated that Woods had zero recollection of the accident
Earlier this week, we learned from the LA Sheriffs office that Woods’ crash was simply due to excessive speed. He allegedly was driving over 80 mph, nearly twice the speed limit, before he crashed.
Woods is said to be at home and recovering. He claimed he was thankful for the team of physicians at UCLA that took care of him and is hopeful to be back on the next PGA Tour as soon as possible. Tiger commented on the LA Sheriff’s conclusion of the investigation below.
