Detectives Won’t Release Details of Tiger Woods Crash Investigation, Due to Privacy Concerns
Los Angeles County detectives have completed their investigation into the one car crash involving Tiger Woods that took place last month.
They have found the cause of the crash and what exactly happened.
However, they will not reveal it to the public due to privacy concerns.
“The release of accident reports is governed under California Vehicle Code Section 20012. When we are able, we intend to release the information learned during the traffic collision investigation involving Tiger Woods,” said the LA County Sheriffs Department in a statement posted on Twitter Wednesday night.
Just prior to that statement being posted, Sheriff Alex Villanueva told the Associate Press that “a cause has been determined; the investigation has concluded,” but said they needed permission from Woods to release information to the public.
The Sheriffs Department has been criticized by some for their handling of the case.
On the day of the accident, they came out right away in a press conference and said it was “purely and accident.”
They also said that no charges would be filed and they did not request a search warrant to get Woods’ blood.
Back in 2017, Woods was charged with a DUI in Florida after he was using prescription drugs.

“Happy to report that I am back home and continuing my recovery. I am so grateful for the outpouring of support and encouragement that I have received over the past few weeks,” Woods said statement. “Thank you to the incredible surgeons, doctors, nurses and staff at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. You have all taken such great care of me and I cannot thank you enough. I will be recovering at home and working on getting stronger every day,” said Woods in a statement posted to his social media accounts.
