Explosive new theory emerges about cause of Tiger Woods crash

Authorities have shared worrying new accounts from Tiger Woods about the frightening car crash that left the golfing legend in hospital with multiple leg injuries.



News of the crash and the horrific injuries that Woods suffered as a result, have sent shockwaves through the sporting world.

Woods was driving alone through a sweeping, downhill stretch of road through coastal suburbs of Los Angeles on Tuesday when his SUV struck a sign, crossed over two oncoming lanes and flipped several times before coming to rest on its side, its airbags deployed.



Photos from the scene painted an ugly picture, with the American’s car suffering extensive damage as a result of the incident.

Woods was left with a shattered right leg and could barely stand on it, according to authorities, who said the golfer didn’t realise how bad his injuries were and can’t actually remember the accident.




“At the hospital he was asked about it by the investigators and he had no recollection of the crash itself,” LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told CNN.

Sheriff’s Deputy Carlos Gonzalez was one of the first people on the scene and said Woods’ reaction to the crash might have been due to shock.




“I don’t think he was aware of how gravely he was injured at the time. It could be a mixture of adrenaline, it could’ve been shock,” Gonzalez said.

“Again it was very quick, the moment that I arrived from the moment that he rolled over, so I don’t know if he had time to fully assess his injuries,” added Gonzalez, who arrived six minutes after a 911 call was made.

Authorities saw no signs of impairment from Woods, who was transported to hospital shortly after the accident.

“At the scene, we’re looking for evidence of intoxication like if there’s an odour of an alcoholic beverage or there’s an open container or prescription medication,” Gonzalez said.
