According to the police, excessive speed was the cause of the serious accident of golf superstar Tiger Woods in Los Angeles at the end of February. According to the LA County Sheriff, the 45-year-old drove between 84 to 87 miles per hour (135 and 140 km / h) on a sloping section that allowed 45 mph.
Woods lost control of his SUV on the accident-prone route and subsequently crashed into a tree. The winner of 82 PGA tournaments – including 15 major wins – suffered serious but not life-threatening leg injuries. According to the sheriff’s office, the excessive speed was the sole reason for the serious crash. There is no evidence of any other impairment of the driver, such as alcohol.
