The video of Tiger Woods driving at high speed minutes before the serious accident

Tiger Woods is recovering from an emergency intervention that had to be carried out after suffering a serious traffic accident. The 45-year-old golfer has significant injuries after undergoing surgery on his right leg, which was shattered by the various impacts that the vehicle suffered to give several turns of the bell. The cause the police are targeting is speeding and a TMZ leak gives more clues.

The American portal has published a video in which Tiger Woods is seen driving his truck shortly before the brutal accident he suffered. Tiger rolls through Ranchos Palos Verdes, in California, and TMZ Sports notes that he was already going at a higher speed than he should at that time.

Woods was leaving his hotel in his car, courtesy of the organization of the last PGA Tour, and was heading to a recording of one of his sponsors.

Free of charge

Tiger Woods will not face criminal charges related to the accident, as Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva announced Wednesday.

“This was what it was: purely an accident. There was no evidence of any impediment. He was lucid, without the smell of alcohol, without evidence of any medication, narcotic or something like that that was being questioned,” Villanueva said in a videoconference with journalists.

Despite this conclusion, the investigators will review the contents of the black box of the car that Woods was driving to obtain information on the speed at which he was going.

At a press conference on Tuesday, Villanueva said the vehicle was traveling at a “relatively higher speed than normal” down a steep incline and downhill, although the investigation into this event is still ongoing.

“I was going at a relatively higher speed than normal. Because it is downhill, it inclines and it also makes curves, that area has a high frequency of accidents. It is not uncommon,” Villanueva said at the time.

On the other hand, the investigators do not know if Woods was distracted with the mobile phone at the time of impact, although they assured that they will find out thanks to the records of his device.

A long operation

After the accident, Woods was immediately hospitalized and underwent surgery to treat “multiple fractures” in both legs, although the injuries sustained did not put his life at risk, according to the medical team that took care of him.

Specifically, the golfer underwent a “long” surgery for injuries to the foot, ankle, tibia and fibula of his right leg.
