- The Los Angeles County sheriff says detectives have determined what caused Tiger Woods to crash his SUV last month in southern California but would not release details, citing privacy concerns. Woods crashed a Genesis SUV in Rolling Hills Estates back on February 23. The vehicle crossed two lanes before going down an embankment.

The first responders said Woods was unconscious when he arrived. Woods suffered multiple injuries to his legs, which required surgery. The golfer is back in Florida recovering now. Detectives later obtained a search warrant for the data recorder in the SUV known as the black box to help investigators determine a cause.

ALEX VILLANUEVA: We have all the contents of the black box. We've got everything. It's completed, signed, sealed, and delivered. However, we can't release it without the permission of the people involved in the collision.

- Woods' representatives have not yet responded. Investigators did not seek a search warrant for Woods' blood samples, which could have been screened for drugs and alcohol on the day of the crash.
