Detectives examine the SUV’s “black box” after the Tiger Woods crash

LOS ANGELES – Detectives look at data from the so-called “black box” of the SUV from Tiger Woods to get a clearer picture of what happened during the rollover crash in Southern California Last week that seriously injured the golf star, authorities said on Wednesday.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said traffic investigators issued a search warrant on Monday to retrieve the data from the device on the Genesis SUV that Woods was driving.

There was no information about what was found in the black box, Deputy Trina Schrader said in a statement.

The luxury brand Hyundai’s 2021 GV80 is likely to have a newer version of event data recorders nicknamed “Black Boxes” after more sophisticated recorders on airplanes. They store a treasure trove of data that the authorities can review.

Woods suffered a serious leg injury when the SUV he was driving pulled off a Los Angeles County road and rolled over on a well-known ramp downhill. Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Woods was not drunk and was driving alone in good weather when the SUV hit an elevated median, drove in oncoming lanes and rolled several times. The accident injured his right leg and required an operation.

USA TODAY first reported the search warrant.
