Los Angeles sheriff's deputies say that after his crash Tiger Woods reportedly told them that he could not remember driving and had no idea how the crash happened.
According to a police affidavit, responding officers arrived at the scene to find Woods trapped and unconscious after the golf star crashed his 2021 Genesis SUV. Authorities had to pry him out of the vehicle with special tools.
"The deputies asked him how the collision occurred," the affidavit stated. "Driver said he did not know and did not even remember driving... Driver was treated for his injuries at the hospital and was asked there again how the collision occurred. He repeated that he did not know and did not remember driving."
Deputy Carlos Gonzales with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department was the first to arrive at the crash. During an interview with NBC News' "Today", he said Woods was able to identify himself immediately following the wreck but was not "aware" of just how bad his injuries were.
Authorities are waiting on information from the vehicle's "black box" to show how fast the SUV was traveling before the crash. The sheriff's department obtained a search warrant to seize the device after a judge believed there to be "probable cause" that Woods committed a crime.
Although the words "reckless driving" were not included on the warrant a judge still cannot sign a search warrant without probable cause of a crime.
Sheriff Alex Villanueva said, "The investigators in the accident, or in the collision, they did a search warrant to seize in essence the black box of the vehicle. And that's all it is. And they're going to go through it and see if they can find out what was the performance of the vehicle, what was happening at the time of impact. And with that, they'll have more information they can attribute the cause of the accident. And that's all it is, and we'll leave it at that, OK?"
Woods remains in the hospital where he suffers from multiple leg injuries.
