Tiger Woods wasn’t slapped with so much as a ticket despite recklessly driving 87 mph in a 45 mph zone for a variety of reasons — including that there were no witnesses, California authorities explained on Wednesday.
The PGA legend was barreling down Hawthorne Boulevard in Rancho Palos Verdes when he smashed into barriers and then a tree that sent his Genesis SUV airborne before landing.
But Los Angeles County Sheriff Capt. James Powers said the accident didn’t warrant charges or citations for speeding or reckless driving.
“Reckless driving, you have to have multiple violations in conjunction with one another,” he told reporters at a press conference announcing the cause of the Feb. 23 crash. “That did not exist here … and the speeding, there’s no independent witnesses regarding the speeding.”
LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva denied Woods — who also did not undergo sobriety testing — received special treatment.
