Police reveal cause of Tiger Woods’s car crash

Tiger Woods

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has finally disclosed the cause of Tiger Woods’ car crash in February, as excessive speed of 82-87 mph in a 45-mph zone.

Woods was driving in the Rancho Palos Verdes area of Los Angeles, en route to a golf course, when his SUV left the road and flipped before coming to rest on its side.

In a news conference Wednesday, law enforcement said that data recordings from the car show that Woods did not brake prior to the accident but did press on the accelerator at a “99 percent” rate.

Lomita Captain James Powers said investigators believe Woods accidentally hit the accelerator instead of the brake.
