  • Tiger Woods was going nearly 40 miles per hour over the speed limit when he crashed his car in February, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said at a press conference.
  • Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said on Wednesday that speed was the primary cause of the February 23 crash, and that a failure to maintain the curvature of the road also played a part.
  • He said that Woods was driving 84 to 87 miles per hour before the crash, and at the time of impact, he was driving about 75 miles an hour.
  • The speed limit in the area is 45 miles an hour.
  • LASD Lomita Station Captain James Powers said Woods likely accidentally pressed the gas pedal instead of the break pedal as he was going through the curve of the road, causing him to lose control of the SUV, which then crashed and rolled over.
