Tiger Woods says he is focusing on his “recovery and family” after Los Angeles authorities officially closed the investigation into his February car crash.
“I am so grateful to both of the good samaritans who came to assist me and called 911,” Woods said in a statement Wednesday. “I am also thankful to the LASD Deputies and LA Firefighter/Paramedics, especially LA Sheriff’s Deputy Carlos Gonzalez and LAFD Engine Co. #106 Fire Paramedics Smith and Gimenez, for helping me so expertly at the scene and getting me safely to the hospital.”
The golf superstar also thanked “everyone for the overwhelming support and encouragement.”
Woods crashed into a tree on February 23, leaving him hospitalized with a fractured leg and shattered ankle. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said Woods was traveling nearly double the speed limit at the time of the crash.
