Tiger Woods’ Auto Crash: Golf Champion Said He Can’t Remember Driving, Says Cops

Sports

World Golf Champion, Tiger Woods told responding deputies to his single-vehicle crash last week that he did not know how the accident happened and didn’t remember driving, USA Today reported Thursday.

USA Today cited a copy of the search warrant affidavit that was used by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to obtain the black box in the SUV Woods was driving.

“The deputies asked him how the collision occurred,” according to the affidavit.

“Driver said he did not know and did not even remember driving … Driver was treated for his injuries at the hospital and was asked there again how the collision occurred. He repeated that he did not know and did not remember driving.”

The black box houses data related to speed and acceleration, braking sequence, steering angle changes and other instrument activity.

A sheriff’s deputy said Wednesday the warrant is a matter of course in LA County and considered part of the department’s due diligence.

“We’re trying to determine if a crime was committed,” Sheriff’s Deputy John Schloegl said.

“If somebody is involved in a traffic collision, we’ve got to reconstruct the traffic collision, if there was any reckless driving, if somebody was on their cell phone or something like that.”
