Tiger Woods was speeding as fast as 87 mph, or more than 45 mph faster than the legal speed limit, before his SUV crashed in late February in southern California, badly injuring the golf legend, police said Wednesday.
Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said the accident was the result of Woods driving in what they called an unsafe manner for road conditions.
Woods’ vehicle was going 75 mph when it crashed and began rolling over, police said.
They also said there was no evidence that Wood was impaired or intoxicated at the time of the Feb. 23 crash.
Police said they will not issue a citation for Woods, who is currently recovering at his home in Florida.
Woods “has no recollection of the collision,” police said.
