Authorities say Tiger Woods was speeding when he crashed

Authorities say Tiger Woods was speeding when he crashed an SUV in the Los Angeles, California area less than two months ago.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff Deputies say Woods was driving more than 80 miles per hour on a downhill stretch of road, that has a speed limit of 45.  Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva blames the late February crash on excessive speed and Wood losing control behind the wheel.  The Sheriff’s Captain James Powers says there is no evidence that the golfer braked throughout the wreck and that it’s believed the 15-time major champion hit the accelerator instead of the brake.  Woods had been back home to host his PGA tournament, the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club, when the crash happened.  He is still recovering multiple injuries in his lower right leg.
