Cops execute search warrant of Tiger Woods' wrecked car to probe 'black box' in bid to solve horror crash mystery

POLICE have issued a search warrant of Tiger Woods' wrecked car to prove its 'black box' to get to the bottom of the mystery crash.

The American golf legend, 45, was involved in a horror smash in California last week.

And while police have confirmed Woods was 'not drunk or on meds', they have executed a warrant to obtain the black box from the Genesis GV80 SUV.

Woods was forced to undergo surgery to fix two fractures in his right leg and a shattered ankle after his car flipped and rolled off the road.

The golf great reportedly hit a raised central reservation at 'speed', smashed through a street sign, hit a tree and then flipped his £36,000 vehicle several times.

The SUV came to rest in bushes at the side of the road where Woods was found trapped inside the car by Deputy Carlos Gonzalez, who was alerted by a neighbour who heard the crash.

A forensic expert suggestrf Woods may have fallen asleep at the wheel, with cops now set to see what information the black box can provide.

During a press conference last week, LA County Sheriff Alex Villanueva confirmed Woods will not be facing criminal charges – but claimed the black box WOULD be assessed.

Villanueva revealed: "We don't contemplate any charges whatsoever in this crash.

"This remains an accident, an accident is not a crime, they do happen unfortunately."

Asked whether or not any drugs of alcohol tests were done at the scene, Villanueva said: "The Deputy on the scene assessed the condition of Tiger Woods and there was no evidence of any impairment whatsoever.

"He was lucid – no evidence of alcohol, no evidence of any medication or narcotics."

Reiterating he did not believe that Woods was under the influence of alcohol, Villanueva said: "He was not drunk… we can throw that one out."

The Sheriff added the black box in the vehicle would be pulled, suggesting 'speed may be a factor in this accident'.

Cops have now executed a warrant to assess the information on the Genesis' black box in a bid to find out the cause of the accident.

Tiger recently revealed he's in good spirits, despite being told he won't be able to walk for at least three months.

And the 15-time Major winner was buoyed to see so many of his fellow players pay tribute to him on Sunday by wearing his iconic red-black combo at the World Golf Championship event in Florida.

Woods tweeted: "It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts.

"To every golfer and every fan, you are truly helping me get through this tough time."
