No criminal charges for Tiger Woods after car crash
American golfer Tiger Woods won’t face any criminal charges after his car crash this week was deemed an accident.
The superstar is currently recovering from major surgery after he was involved in a rollover crash just outside Los Angeles on Tuesday, but County Sheriff Alex Villanueva has confirmed the 45-year-old won’t face any action over the incident.
He said in a Facebook Live chat: “We don’t contemplate any charges whatsoever in this crash.
“This remains an accident. An accident is not a crime. They do happen, unfortunately.”
Tiger, a 15-time major winner, sustained serious leg injuries in the crash, which saw his SUV veer across two lanes and hit a curb before the car turned over.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for Tiger recently confirmed he is “awake, responsive and recovering” after undergoing surgery.
