'Conclusions are misguided:' Tiger Woods crash investigation criticized by forensic experts
Brent Schrotenboer
USA TODAY
April 11 update
Evidence released this week from the investigation into why Tiger Woods crashed his car and nearly died in February continues to point to a simple cause that ties all the available clues together, forensic crash experts told USA TODAY Sports.
They believe the evidence is consistent with Woods being unconscious when he left his lane and then went on a straight path of pure danger for nearly 400 feet instead of staying with the road as it curved right. Woods didn’t hit the brakes during the recorded collision sequence, didn’t steer out of the emergency and didn’t remember driving.
But the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department instead gave other reasons for the crash this week and barely mentioned the possibility of Woods being unconscious.
“Their conclusions are misguided, and the investigation obviously wasn’t thorough,” said Jonathan Cherney, a former police detective who now works as a car crash reconstruction expert.

Cherney suspects that is because Woods is a celebrity and because there were no other people injured in the crash. He said responding officers were not “as critical of this case as they would have been if Tiger had slammed into an opposing vehicle coming the other direction with multiple passengers.”
Sheriff's Department authorities declared the case to be an accident from the start and noted the road of the crash was known for unsafe speeds and accidents. After missing or misjudging clues early on, Cherney said the investigators seemed to dig in their heels and not want to divert from that early narrative.

He likely has career ending injuries.
No amount of fines can compare to what he's going to lose.

Yet another awesome ad for Genesis.
The front looked better after he knocked it off of the car.

The question is if he was unconscious, what caused it? Too much drinking or what?
It was in the morning, maybe an all-night bender with hookers and he just dozed-off?

Crazy how fast he was going; didn't hit the brakes!? YIKES!

If it isn't one thing it's something else...
He should stick to the drivers in his golf bag, and get a skilled professional chauffeur-type driver for the big boy toys, like vehicles. He's clearly operating above his pay grade when he gets behind the wheel.
He was lucky he didn't kill anyone here. And no blood draw? How strange! :rolleyes:

Going 85, off course, no steering no braking for many seconds, until impact? Draw your own conclusions. I'd say "nobody home."

He didn't hit the brakes. Unless you consider a tree the new brakes. Tiger is apparently either a seriously 💩y driver or he has a substance abuse problem. I'll check the "both" box.
