Video Transcript

- Just a few hours from now, the LA County Sheriff's Department is planning to release its report on the Tiger Woods crash.

- Eyewitness News reporter John Gregory is live in Lomita with the details. John?

JOHN GREGORY: And Leslie, a lot of questions about exactly what happened. What caused Tiger Woods to lose control and crash his vehicle? We're hoping this report will provide some answers.

The accident happened back on February 23. Woods was driving through Rancho Palos Verdes. He lost control of his vehicle. He crossed over a center median. He crossed opposing lanes of traffic. He rolled several times before finally coming to a stop.

It was a terrible crash, and he suffered some serious injuries, multiple breaks to his right leg. He injured his foot. He injured his ankle. He's currently recovering at his home in Florida. And recently, some fellow golfers visited him, and they say he's doing surprisingly well.

RORY MCILROY: It was good to see him. It was good, you know, good to see him in decent spirits. And actually, not as, you know, like, when you hear of these things and you look at the car and you see the crash, it's like you think he's going to be in a hospital bed for six months. But, you know, he was actually-- he was doing better than that.

JOHN GREGORY: Now as for what caused the crash, the Sheriff's Department did indicate at the time that speed was likely a factor. But one key question is why Woods never appeared to hit the brakes. There are no skid marks at the crash scene, no indication that he tried to slow down. So that's going to be a key question that will be asked today. The Sheriff's Department again releasing that report at 10:00 AM. And of course, we'll be covering this story throughout the day.
