LOS ANGELES (AP/77 WABC) — The Sheriff overseeing the investigation into the Tiger Woods car crash says he will not face criminal charges over the incident — calling it a pure “accident.”
Authorities say Tiger Woods has been seriously injured after his SUV rolled over and ended up on its side in suburban Los Angeles. He suffered serious injuries to legs and required surgery.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department says Woods was alone in the vehicle and no other cars were involved Tuesday. His agent says Woods is undergoing leg surgery.

Authorities say the golf superstar had to be pulled out through the front windshield. Woods was in Los Angeles over the weekend as the tournament host of the Genesis Invitational at Riviera. The cause of the wreck wasn’t clear. A councilwoman in the area says the road is steep and it’s easy to pick up speed.
