Tiger Woods is lucky to be alive.
Woods reportedly was seen speeding away from a hotel in the Los Angeles area before the crash. And even though his car appeared to be heavily damaged, the interior of it was intact.
“Well, the interior, the cabin of the vehicle was more or less intact,” LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva told reporters, as seen on ESPN. “The front end was totally destroyed. The bumpers, everything was destroyed, airbags deployed, all of that. However, thankfully the interior was more or less intact, which kind of gave him the cushion to survive what otherwise would have been a fatal crash.”
Woods was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Contrary to speculation on social media immediately following the announcement of the crash, responding officers said they saw “no evidence of impairment” from Woods at the scene, according to a WUSA9 report.
