Tiger Woods was found unconscious on crash scene by local man, LA County officials say
Tiger Woods is fortunately still with us after surviving a brutal car crash that resulted in major injuries to his right leg in Southern California last week. According to an affidavit released by Los Angeles County, the first witness who reportedly checked on the crash site said that he first found the legendary golfer unconscious and was unresponsive to questions.
The witness, who lives near the accident scene in Rolling Hills Estates just outside Los Angeles, heard the crash and walked to the SUV, Los Angeles County sheriff’s Deputy Johann Schloegl wrote in the affidavit. The man told deputies that Woods had lost consciousness and did not respond to his questions.
The report further detailed that the deputy arrived at the scene minutes after the accident. By the time, Tiger Woods had already regained consciousness but looked shocked by what happened.
The affidavit revealed that TigerWoods had repeatedly told sheriff’s deputies that he did not recall driving and did not remember how the crash exactly happened. The 45-year-old golf legend was on the wheels of an SUV when he hit a raised median before crashing on a downhill stretch where the accident occurred.
Investigations will continue as officials look into the vehicle’s black box to determine the speed that Woods was driving before the impact. This should also reveal more details about how the accident happened.
Nevertheless, as more details of this unfortunate crash surface, the sporting world is still grateful that the greatest golfer of all time is still alive and well.
