The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office said on Wednesday that the Tiger Woods crash in February was caused by excessive speed, as the Woods SUV was traveling 84 to 87 mph along a slope of road outside Los Angeles, and the speed limit was 45. Miles per hour. Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the car was traveling at 75 miles an hour when it hit a tree, no traffic lights were issued, and authorities said there was no evidence of malfunctions or distractions in the driving, so they had no probable reason to get these orders. However, investigators searched the SUV’s data recorder, known as the black box, and Villanueva blamed the February 23 accident solely on excessive speeding and Woods’ loss of control behind the wheel. Sheriff James Powers, who oversees the sheriff’s station closest to the crash site, said there was no evidence that the golfer had braked all over the wreck and that he believed Woods had inadvertently hit the throttle rather than the brake pedal. “The main causative factor behind this was this traffic collision driving at an unsafe speed due to road conditions and the inability to negotiate the curve of the road.” The investigators did not request search warrants for the athlete’s blood samples, which could have been tested for drugs, alcohol, or his cell phone, he said. Sheriff officials said Woods told lawmakers that he had not taken any medication or alcohol prior to the accident. Bowers said, “These questions have been asked and answered.” Woods tweeted a statement after the press conference thanking those who helped him immediately after his crash and who had helped him since the accident. He said he continues.
