While Tiger Woods is recovering from leg injuries sustained in last week’s early morning car crash, there are some sad reports coming out about why Tiger’s children aren’t visiting him at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. According to HollywoodLife.com, this has been Tiger’s call and it’s for a very specific reason.
“He feels that it would be too dramatic for them to see their dad hurt. He’s reassured them that he’s getting better each day and everything’s going to be alright. Everyone’s taking things day by day,” a source told the media outlet.
“Tiger wants his kids to have a normal life as best as they can,” the source added. “When things settle and he’s able leave the hospital, he will see his kids.”
There’s also a belief that Tiger doesn’t want his kids to be subjected to the media presence outside the hospital, where paparazzi would go nuts to get a shot of the kids entering the medical facility.
As for the crash, Tiger reportedly told sheriff’s deputies he didn’t remember anything and isn’t sure what happened. “The deputies asked him how the collision occurred,” according to an affidavit filed in the case. “Driver said he did not know and did not even remember driving… Driver was treated for his injuries at the hospital and was asked there again how the collision occurred. He repeated that he did not know and did not remember driving.”
Police have recovered a “black box” from the SUV to analyze and see if the puzzle of what happened can be put together.
“The investigators in the accident, or in the collision, they did a search warrant to seize in essence the black box of the vehicle,” Sheriff Alex Villanueva told reporters Wednesday. “And that’s all it is. And they’re going to go through it and see if they can find out what was the performance of the vehicle, what was happening at the time of impact. And with that, they’ll have more information they can attribute the cause of the accident. And that’s all it is, and we’ll leave it at that, OK?”
