Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Wednesday that Tiger Woods was driving 84 to 87 miles per hour at the time of his February 23 crash, nearly twice the speed limit of 45 miles per hour, blaming the crash on Woods’ high speed and loss of control behind the wheel.

Sheriff’s Captain James Powers said there was no evidence Woods tried to brake, and investigators believe he may have stepped on the gas instead of the brake in a panic.

Woods suffered serious leg injuries in the crash and underwent surgery. Villanueva said last week they’d determined the cause of the crash, but needed permission from Woods to release it. He said Wednesday that Woods had given it.
