Tiger Woods Automobile crash: Sheriff to release findings

Golfer Rory McIlroy says Woods is"completely focused on the recovery process."

Police on Wednesday will release the findings of the rollover automobile crash that left Tiger Woods seriously injured.

Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva is currently holding a media conference at 1 p.m. ET to talk about the golfing good's Feb. 23 accident in Southern California.

Villanueva said last month that an outcome was decided and the analysis had concluded.

"We have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel," Villanueva said. "There is some privacy problems on distributing information on the investigation so we are going to ask them if they stipulate that the solitude and then we will be able to do a complete release."

Woods was alone, driving a 2021 Genesis GV80 SUV, when he crashed on the boundary of Rolling Hills property and Rancho Palos Verdes.

The vehicle hit the center median, crossed to the opposite lane and then struck on the control and a shrub, '' the sheriff said in February. The GV80 rolled over a few times and was found several hundred feet from the middle divider using a deployed airbag.

In February the prosecution said no charges have been expected against Woods, calling the wreck"only an crash."

Days later he was transferred to a different hospital to get follow-up processes.

Woods stated in a March 16 statement that he was back in Florida and continuing his recovery.

Fellow golfer Rory McIlroy told The New York Times this week he's seen Woods and described him as in"decent spirits."

"He is fully concentrated on the recovery procedure," McIlroy told The Times. "And I feel as though he is mentally strong enough to make it through that. And after he does, broken bones heal, and he has only got to take it step by step. I am convinced he is going to put everything he has into trying to be ready to perform."
