On the morning of Tuesday, February 23, 2021, as Tiger Woods drove down a county road, steep in profile and with wide lanes allowing a speed of 45 mph (72 km/h), Mistaking the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal, he travels at a speed of 84 to 87 miles per hour — about 140 km/h — a dangerous speed given the road conditions and the cornering. He lost control of his vehicle which crossed a central reservation, rolled over several times and ended up near the dual carriageway he was using. Luckily, no oncoming vehicle was hit.
The accident occurred around 7:12 a.m. (PST) at Rolling Hills Estates north of the Palos Verdes Peninsula in Los Angeles County with a Courtesy Vehicle Genesis GV80 that he was driving alone and had for the week. The crash site is located at 26475 County Route N7 (33°47’09″N 118°21’53″W).
Rescued from the vehicle by the emergency services, he suffered serious leg injuries and had to be admitted to the Cedars-Sinai medical center in Los Angeles for an emergency operation. The seriousness of his injuries, in particular his multiple open fractures to his legs, could jeopardize his professional career.
The vehicle’s trajectory and speed were recorded by a crash data recorder. This trajectory is considered to determine if a crime took place, but if the accident is considered an unintentional accident the information is kept secret/confidential and the case closed.
Loss of vehicle control is questioned by some experts who believe that a vehicle going straight on a bend could be caused by a sleeping driver.
