The cause of Tiger Woods’ serious crash that left him with severe damage to his legs has been determined by investigators.
However, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said that the findings of the investigation will not be released to the public unless Tiger’s team gives the green light due to “privacy issues,” according to TMZ Sports.
“A cause has been determined, the investigation has concluded,” Villanueva said in a statement.
“We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel … There’s some privacy issues on releasing information on the investigation so we’re going to ask them if they waive the privacy and then we will be able to do a full release on all the information regarding the accident.”TMZ previously released some information regarding the crash:
As we previously reported … the investigation had unearthed some troubling evidence after law enforcement sources told us they believed Tiger never hit the brakes as he spun off the road. We were also told there was no evidence he took his foot off the gas either.
Woods, who had his leg stabilized with a rod and screws following the crash, recovered at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles before being discharged earlier this month. He had”suffered comminuted open fractures in his right leg.” That means the bone was fractured in multiple places and broke through the skin.
Woods is currently recovering from his injuries at home.
