Speeding Was Cause Of Tiger Woods Crash, Investigators Say | NBC Nightly News


  • Volvos aren't very good . Toyota camrys can go 87 mph without crashing,my datsun 510 goes 166 without crashing.

  • no charges filed ????? WHAT!?!??! nearly doubled the speed limit causing a crash. . he should not be able to collect the insurance and he needs a speeding ticket and license revoked. enough is enough with this guy. he has a proven pattern of this.

  • Forget the pass and move on in life be happy

  • Why are you so sad love is the best for all .Text me and pray please Jehoveh love you give him Vicitory and the praise.spaim100 read the bible day by day its your girl you know smle

  • Get well soon say jehovah well.

  • Hi Tiger Wood have a wonderful day love to you and family God bless.

  • He could had killed someone and now he not being held accountable !!!

  • Be cool Tyger

  • He can’t get out of his own way

  • It was a big mistake on the part of the police to choose not to do a toxicology screening. He was doing twice the speed limit, he apparently 'mistook the gas pedal for the brake pedal', and he has a history of pharmaceutical abuse and addiction, including Ambien. Just another example of how the rich and famous are usually above the law.

  • U mean speeding and being high on opiods

  • Am I the only one that thinks this was a genuine suicide attempt.

  • Yes right. Where is the drug test for the pain meds he was on.

  • Would I have gotten a ticket for doing it?

  • Cops were paid off. Hands down.

  • His car has a black box?

  • Well, once again, one law for most of us and another for some. Very bad look. Should be charged same as the rest of us. Smells very similar to OJ.

  • Do you think it be any thing less that cause the injury Of course he was speeding thank God he is okay

  • We are missing the truth here, They always point out his greatness as a black golfer, and not his his inability to drive as an Asian. Sorry, sometimes you just need to laugh people!!!!

  • What was in is system. This guy has a tolerance, seems like his reaction time was slow

  • Tiger shouldn't have a license. It's that simple.

  • I swear he is involved in more accidents than any person I've known of. And only he gets hurts- which is good. But it seems to me these may be reckless suicide attempts. He needs his head examined, I don’t think he is well at all. 🙁

  • He's not receiving any special treatment? BS!!! IF you or I did what Tiger did, we'd be sighted with SPEEDING, WRECKLESS DRIVING at the very least! CELEBRITY PRIVILEGE! Dollars to donuts, Tiger was speeding well before that stretch of road. 87 in a 45?!?!? For most, that's a jailable offense.

  • just another case of the privileged getting away with breaking laws..his foot hit the wrong pedal...went from 60kms to 120kms...he didnt remember anything🤣🤣🤣

  • You would figure a guy with that kind of money, and that kind of reckless automobile history, would have the decency to hire a full-time chauffer.

  • No blood alcohol or toxicology screen ? Sounds pretty fishy. Why no charges if the “black box “ proves he was speeding ? Tiger must be paying someone off .

    • OJ all over again. Maybe Opera will do an extensive interview.

  • I think Tiger Woods needs to be countable for his actions.

  • They are giving him special treatment. How can they say that checking his phone use isn't a factor. They also said he pressed the accelerator instead of brakes, maybe he did it on purpose.

  • Drugs

  • On this particular road, Northbound Hawthorn Blvd., you can achieve 45-50 mph without ever touching the accelerator!!! From the 'T-Intersection' at the top, it's downhill for 3/4 of a mile!!!!

  • I am Ade Munandar, an American, a failed product, an American citizen, once an American President, which does not allow America to be unsustainable, it is also sustainable.

  • No ticket for speeding ? I am glade he has not killed anyone . He is not too bright !😨

    • He succumbed to the 'dark side'!!!! He is still alive, he is still very wealthy!!!! He can hire all of the bright people he might need!!!

  • 87 mph is speeding in the US? In Germany it's average speed on the Autobahn 😂

    • I've been on the Autobahn. There are tons of speed limits on it. It's only in certain sections that the recommended speed of 130/Kmph is not enforced.

    • This street is considered a 'secondary' street, 45 mph.

  • It’s possible to spend your entire life doing dumb things consistently. Thereafter seeking forgiveness from those who don’t. This man is extremely good at hitting a ball with a stick.... When it comes to the things that really define a person, he is still to get going. He is yet to find adulthood.

  • Police investigating the crash said Tiger is not out of the woods yet!

  • always looks like hes on the verge of crying

  • What a model citizen endangering others lives on the road , its not bad enough with managing your life around covid-19 and you have to watch out for this stupidity......

    • Many people speed down this hill, every day!!!!

  • Today we witnessed how Biden thanked Putin for his support in the elections. Oil prices are rising! Biden does not resist. The sanctions are only simulated. President Donald Trump

  • It's official. Tiger has the driving skills of an average golfer.

  • Very lucky to be alive... GENESIS.

    • @Johnson Hunglo no, he was in the 1st lane and ran over the concrete bumper in the middle then he completely lost control hit 2 more concrete bumpers before hitting the 4th impact which was a tree. GV80 has 49/51 near even weight distribution. Dude was speeding and doing something else.

    • No, the car may be deficient in its weight distribution!!!! There are a few deep curves on this street, not sharp, deep!!!! And it is a three-lane (each way) street!!!!

  • guess he'll get a trophy for that too...

  • Another person that can't drive, but in denial of that

  • not even a ticket no problem here

  • i suspect tiger lived to please his father. ever since he died tiger has, IMO, been leading a life with little direction.

  • WHO TF Cares!

  • Immediate in new cars and bills bills they got a mess on a new Buicks the celebration of the celebration in a mu buildings in a Buick Buick’s sometimes the new cars in Butte distillery synonym the good cars but someone will just go straight garbage

    • What are you trying to say ? All I comprehend is blah blah blah. You sound very low IQ.

  • They got black boxes on car 😳?

  • FANTASTIC!!! now I can sleep tonight thanks NBC 😉

    • @Pixxie Schittz nah but your mom did tho

  • No ticket?

  • Self-righteous commenters here have all the answers and run their lives without mistake. Believe me.

  • We are giving special treatment to Tiger because he's a star and everyone knows Cali. Is Corrupted we are not gonna cite him for anything now and forever and there's nothing you can do about it. What kind of message are we giving to young kids. Messed up.

  • Was he distracted or drunk 🥴 unbelievable

  • Like his very good friend Donald Trump, tiger gets away with everything.

  • home boy got pulled over wit a bottle of pills drunk in jupiter near where i live a couple yrs ago. take this man car away already.

  • You would think Tiger was driving a DeLorean...

  • Yeah whatever

  • WWTWD?

  • He was high on drugs and alcohol No drug test or breath test They are giving the rich people special privilege Anyone else would be in jail.

    • @Johnson Hunglo cuz we live in a society.

    • Funny how it's not about black or white anymore is it? It's class privilege now. It actually always has been. It's just that there are plenty more poor white people today that its effecting.

    • @Pixxie Schittz Jesus was a commie. FACT

    • And how would you know that?

  • So I'm guessing Tiger was late ? 😁

  • Unfortunately, his career is probably over.

    • All professional (paid) golfer should contribute 10% of their earnings to Tiger!!!! Were it not for him there would only be four or five tournaments a year!!!

  • I’m not buying this at all. So why did the police not want to release that earlier due to “privacy” they said. I bet my bottom dollar he was sexting a mistress.

  • It’s called special treatment !!! To not even check his phone to see if he was distracted and driving BTS police investigation !!

  • Money does buy happiness

  • Privledged🥺That's Ok! So Call luck Runs out.😕

  • I could have told you that...

  • Lol drugs

  • Yea, Tiger doesn't remember anything. Yea, right! Bullxxxx! 75 to 80 mph, What a liar! I'd say he was as high as a kite. How convenient no blood work was done.

  • Well, cross NASCAR off your next career change move.

  • Lucky


    • And he is looking for Stephen Miller!!!!!

  • He was obviously "asleep" at the wheel to end up like he did, it's not like he's a new driver who'd mistake the brake for the gas as he "spontaneously" veered into the opposite lane!

    • No he was in a rush to make a commercial engagement at the course. He was spotted cutting people off and driving extremely aggressive. The kind of thing and entitled individual does.

    • Sleepy drivers typically dont speed like that

    • Or on Drugs

  • I think he need a personal driver Maybe Miss Daisy driver looking for a job

  • LAPD is one of the most corrupt police departments in the U.S.

    • This actually falls under LA Sheriff's jurisdiction. This is a very wealthy neighborhood!!! The CHP hangs out around there too.

  • Is he going crazy from giving them white women so much money, knowing they going to spend it with white men

  • Loser tiger

  • Just like all demons on the West Coast. Speeding, killing people and wildlife and harming self.

  • Why are they still messing with this guy?

  • Arrogance has a price.

  • These cars with the data is scaring me.... eventually you'll never be able to speed cause it's all computerized and tracked... soon it will be all autonomous driving... we might be the last generations of people to get to drive cars, we may be at the peak. Look at the last 100 years of cars... humans driving cars may only go down in history as a 100-200 year tradition!

    • So true, and that's exactly why I'm holding onto my 1971 Plymouth Cuda.

  • Is like people want tiger to be a drunk or have a reason to point fingers , the man was going fast how many people do that on the daily basis ,really? instead looking how to blame thank he is alive.

    • I have never drove 90 on street. But If I did and then crashed I guarantee I would have been drug tested and charged.

    • They are trolls, pay no attention to them. They hate that the most. 👍

    • I think a broken leg, a wrecked new vehicle, and public embarrassment is punishment enough. He didn't need any tickets.

    • Yeah he was only going over twice the speed limit ffs

  • Cops didnt investegate drugs/ liqour & he doent remeber...very convenient. He was prob like "ill give u a golfball with my autograph if u tell nobody" & cops were like "say no more!"

    • @CoBoakRHQ mental health can be a problem for anyone. Dosnt matter how rich u are. I just don't think it adds up why he just kept accelerating didnt even attempt to brake before he crashed.

    • @Huddo Champ why would he? he has a loving son, a mother that supports him, and a daughter. the chances of it being suicide are very low.

    • It was probably because this was a suicide attempt by Tiger

    • i wouldve done the same thing

  • No matter what kind of car I was driving I always got into racing around with it. I'm lucky to be alive.

  • Perhaps Tiger should hire a driver.

  • Bet he won't get his license taken away or a speeding ticket. Two different sets of laws when the rich are involved.

    • If his injuries mean anything, he’s not going to be driving soon either way

    • Yup.

  • I KNEW it. That creep couldve killed others. He got off lucky. SPOILT dude should have license revoked FOREVER.

    • @Christopher Chamberlain absolutely! He needs to reimburse Genesis for wrecking their vehicle too...

    • Where I live it is a criminal charge to drive double the speed limit.

  • Biden's been in politics 48 years but has only shown signs of stuttering in recent years 🤔

    • @The Tweatles: Are there spots or just a spotlight on it?

    • @John Watt Actually in reality it's on my ceiling! 😀 #WilliamHmusic2021isnicemusic

    • @John Watt 😂

    • It's time to take down the President Trump bathing suit poster hanging beside your bed.

  • Death wish?

    • That was a great movie.

    • Paul Kersey ! " Do You Believe In Jesus ? " - " Yes I Do " - " Well , You're Gonna Meet Him ! " 🔫

  • They should change his name to the cat with 9 lives clearly he is his own worst enemy

  • 5 star crash test. Hyundai should pay Tiger Woods for increased SUV sales.

  • Special treatment.

  • In a hurry to nowhere

  • He tried to commit suicide. Doesn't want to admit.

  • Great at golf. Terrible at life. Dude needs a good friend to talk some sense into him.

  • Take his car.
