The 15-time major tournament winner, who had suffered serious injuries to his right leg, also thanked the officials and paramedics for the help and concluded with the words: “I will continue to concentrate on my recovery and my family and thank everyone for the overwhelming support and encouragement I received during this very difficult time. “
Way too fast on the way
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva had previously announced that Woods was traveling far too fast. “The main cause of this traffic accident was a speed that was unsafe for the road conditions and an inability to master the curve,” said the 45-year-old.
Woods' SUV had gone off the road in Ranchos Palos Verdes south of Los Angeles in late February and rolled over several times. The golfer suffered serious injuries to his right leg and had to undergo an operation. He is currently recovering at his Florida home.
