AIRBAG SAVED HIS LIFE

At a news conference, Los Angeles Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Woods’ airbags were deployed, and the car’s bumpers and exterior were all heavily damaged.

Villanueva said: “After all of that, the interior was more or less intact which kind of gave him the cushion to survive which otherwise would have been a fatal crash.

During the presser, Villanueva said the Sheriff’s Office received a call at 7:12 AM from a neighbour who heard the crash and came down to meet arriving authorities as the car was hidden behind shrubbery.

“There was no evidence of impairments,” Villanueva said, adding there was no need to administer a sobriety test because the tell-tale signs of drugs of alcohol “were not present.”

“It crossed the centre divider to the point it was several hundred feet away” Villanueva said, implying Woods was “traveling at a relatively greater speed than normal.”

Villanueva and other officials explained that particular area in the road has “a high frequency of accident, it’s not uncommon,” given the steepness of the road and the slight bend undetectable to speeding drivers.

“There were no skid marks, no breaking, meaning the first contact was with the centre median,” the sheriff continued. “Then crossed into the opposing lane of traffic, hit a curb, hit a tree, and several roll overs during that process.”

The sheriff said Woods “was able to communicate and he was conscious,” adding again “he was alive, and he was conscious.”
