Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Wednesday the cause of Tiger Woods' February car crash has been determined and the investigation has concluded, but he needs Woods' permission to release the report.
California law restricts access to full crash reports to only certain involved parties.
Woods, who suffered broken bones in his right leg, announced March 16 on Twitter that he was back home. Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, didn't return a message from USA TODAY Sports seeking comment.
Villanueva also said he still considers the single-car crash to have been an “accident” despite evidence that suggests the famed golfer didn’t brake or steer out of the emergency for nearly 400 feet after striking an eight-inch curb in the median.
“You have an accident and you have deliberate acts,” Villanueva said on a Facebook livestream session in response to a question from USA TODAY Sports. “It’s an accident, OK. We’re reaching out to Tiger Woods to be able to release the report itself, and nothing has changed from what we know and what we learned throughout the course of the investigation. And everything we did turned out to be accurate.”
