The cause of Tiger Woods' car crash has been determined, but will not be shared with the public. Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva confirmed on Wednesday that the investigation into Woods' February crash has been completed, but declined to shared its findings due to "privacy issues."
"A cause has been determined. The investigation has concluded," he said. "However, we have reached out to Tiger Woods and his personnel... There's some privacy issues on releasing information on the investigation, so we are going to ask them if they waive the privacy and then we'll be able to do a full release on all the information regarding the accident."
"We have all the contents of the black box. We've got everything," Villanueva added of the data recorder, which L.A. County Sheriff's Deputy Johann Schloegl previously said he believed would "explain how/why the collision occurred."
"It's completed, sign, sealed, and delivered," Villanueva continued. "However, we can’t release it without the permission of the people involved in the collision."
While Villanueva, who previously said that criminal charges stemming from the accident were unlikely, wouldn't share the cause of the crash, he did confirm that "it still remains an accident."
"You know, you have an accident or you have a deliberate accident. It's an accident," he said. "We're reaching out to Tiger Woods to be able to release the report itself. Nothing has changed from what we know and what we learned throughout the course of the investigation. Everything we did turned out to be accurate."
