FOX NEWS – Tiger Woods reportedly told Los Angeles sheriff’s deputies after his crash that he could not remember driving and wasn’t sure how the crash happened.
Responding officers found Woods unconscious and trapped after the legendary golfer crashed a 2021 Genesis SUV, USA Today reported Wednesday, citing a police affidavit.
Authorities said they used tools to pry him out of the vehicle. The affidavit read:
“The deputies asked him how the collision occurred. 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.”
Carlos Gonzalez, a deputy with the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, was the first to arrive on the scene.
He told NBC News’ “Today” show last month that Woods was able to identify himself immediately after the wreck but wasn’t “aware” of the severity of his injuries.

Law enforcement said the possible offense committed by the badly injured links legend is misdemeanor reckless driving, TMZ reported.
The search warrant — which doesn’t include the words “reckless driving” — prepared by the LA County Sheriff’s Department addressed probable cause, including the lack of skid marks, the objects struck by the vehicle, its extensive damage and apparent excessive speed, according to the outlet.
No specific crime was listed on the warrant, but the outlet noted that a judge can’t sign a search warrant unless there’s probable cause a crime had been committed, sources told TMZ.
One of two things may have led to the issuance of the warrant – a member of law enforcement discussed possible reckless driving with the judge or the judge alone determined the probable cause, according to the outlet, citing its sources.
The warrant said there was no evidence Tiger was driving impaired, TMZ reported.
Sheriff’s Deputy John Schloegl also has said investigators are trying to determine if a crime had been committed … Read more.
