No evidence Tiger Woods slowed down, hit brakes in rollover crash: Report

New details about Tiger Woods’ February rollover crash are raising questions about what exactly happened to the golf pro, TMZ reports.

Police sources have told TMZ there is no evidence that Woods, 45, had slowed down while his vehicle was veering off a road in Rancho Palos Verdes on February 23.

What’s more, there is no evidence yet that Woods attempted to stop, and investigators reportedly believe he did not apply the car brake after he lost control of the vehicle.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which is investigating the crash, has examined Woods’ sports utility vehicle, the site of the incident and data from the vehicle’s black box. At this point in time, investigators have not identified evidence to indicate that Woods sought to stop once he lost control, according to TMZ.

When emergency crews arrived at the scene, they pulled Woods out through the luxury SUV’s front windshield.

As CrimeOnline reported previously, Woods has said he does not remember what happened.

Sources have told TMZ that investigators have also reviewed multiple videos related to Woods’ trip, such as security cameras at the hotel where he started the drive and other similar footage along the route.

Woods’ was reportedly driving “normal” before the area where he crashed and was not speeding, but the evidence indicates that the vehicle had accelerated and was speeding at the time of the incident, according to TMZ.

Soon after the crash, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said there was no evidence that Woods was operating the vehicle while impaired or under the influence of alcohol, although police did not get a warrant to draw his blood to test for medications, according to TMZ.

At the time, Woods was recovering from back surgery and was hosting a golf tournament, although he could not play because of his back.

Woods suffered serious injuries to his leg and also had a major gash on his chin.

The Sheriff’s Department is not officially commenting on TMZ’s report.

“We are not releasing any further information at this time,” a department spokesperson told the New York Post on Saturday.
