TMZ.com – There are a lot of questions surrounding why cops didn’t take a sample of Tiger Woods’ blood after his rollover crash …
but the fact of the matter is, there was simply no reason for them to do so because there was no evidence Tiger was impaired at the time of the crash.
Law enforcement sources tell us there were no drugs or alcohol inside of Tiger’s GV80, nor did he show any signs of impairment when he was pulled out of the wreckage.
In fact, cops say he was awake and alert on the ambulance ride over to the hospital … so the guy wasn’t totally out of it by any means.
Beyond that, if cops want to draw blood to see if someone’s under the influence — they need a warrant to do it, and for that … they need probable cause, none of which existed in Tiger’s situation. Again, there was no evidence of impairment.

Many people have been trying to search what crash ratings the GV80 has received, but unfortunately, neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (aka the federal government) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety have tested the GV80.
However, both the Genesis G70 and G90 sedans received the IIHS best-possible Top Safety Pick+ award, while most other vehicles in the Hyundai-Kia-Genesis group received at least Top Safety Pick awards.
These are determined by a given vehicle’s crash worthiness, the performance of its accident avoidance tech (see below) and headlight quality.
What safety features does it include? Standard on every GV80 are the usual complement of airbags: front, front side and full-length side curtain.
However, it stands out by offering several airbags that are not typical: driver knee airbag, a front center airbag and second-row side airbags. Also included are the usual stability control and antilock brake systems … Read more.
