NO SIGNS OF IMPAIRMENT

Alex Villanueva, the County Sheriff of Los Angeles County, stated that they were looking at whether Woods was under alcohol, medication, and narcotics influences. None of these were found in the golf star.

While the reason behind the crash is still under investigation, the County Sheriff added that the impact from the situation hadn't affected Woods. He said:

"No evidence of impairment this time. That will be subject to the investigation."

CONSCIOUS AND STABLE

Meanwhile, Daryl Osby, chief of Los Angeles County Fire, said that Woods was conscious and stable after his team removed him from his luxury SUV. Authorities used different tools to pull the renowned golf player out from the crushed vehicle.

Woods drove his car alone when the incident happened. His agent, Mark Steinberg, reportedly said that the father of two suffered multiple leg injuries after being taken to the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

WOODS' DRIVING SPEED

The crash wouldn't have occurred if Woods didn't drive fast. Villanueva explained that the top golfer drove his car at a "relatively greater speed than normal," which caused him to crash in a hilly area.

Villanueva added that road crashes are not uncommon and noted a high frequency of accidents in the area because of its sloped streets. Woods hit a center divider and flew several hundred feet away.

Before Woods' crash incident, two sources reportedly told Fox News that the golf star was set to work with Discovery Networks.

Deputy Carlos Gonzales, one of the emergency personnel, said that Woods was fortunate to survive the crash. The front part of his car was reportedly destroyed while the inside of the vehicle was "more or less" intact.

Another vehicle crashed after Woods' situation, but no injuries were reported. Officials also noted that Woods was wearing his seatbelt while driving.

Before the crash occurred, two sources reportedly told Fox News that Woods was set to work with Discovery Networks. He was about to do "teaching lessons" behind the scenes with celebrities.

Woods was running late and took off from the hotel with his SUV. He was in a hurry to meet his crew and his handler who were waiting for him to arrive when they learned about the crash.
