Latests on Tiger Woods car accident
The Woods accident generated great attention around the Korean brand Genesis: despite the strong impact, which caused extensive damage to the car to the point of having to cut the metal sheets to extract the golf champion from the cockpit, the GV80 SUV proved to be solid and robust, to the point that the popularity of the brand has grown.
Investigators unearthed some evidence that undoubtedly highlights the golfer's failure to brake before the impact of his car. Indeed, from the "crash test" carried out it was noted that Woods never took his foot off the accelerator, almost as if he had not noticed the impending collision.
The former numer one was unconscious in a mangled SUV after he crashed the vehicle in Southern California last week, according to a court document that also revealed a nearby resident and not a sheriff's deputy was first on the scene.
The witness, who lives near the accident scene in Rolling Hills Estates just outside Los Angeles, heard the crash and walked to the SUV, Los Angeles County sheriff's Deputy Johann Schloegl wrote in the affidavit. The man told deputies that Woods had lost consciousness and did not respond to his questions.
The first deputy, Carlos Gonzalez, arrived minutes later the morning of Feb. 23 and has said Woods appeared to be in shock but was conscious and able to answer basic questions. Woods suffered severe injuries to his right leg and cuts to his face.
