‘Black-box’ recorder in Tiger Woods’ Genesis GV80 SUV could reveal details of car accident

The device, known in the automotive industry as an event data recorder, is what authorities could tap as they investigate the nature of Tiger Woods’ horrifying crash Tuesday.

Woods was driving a Genesis GV80 luxury SUV when he careened off the road in a rollover accident that resulted in serious leg injuries for the golf legend. The reasons behind the crash remain unknown, and Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said a traffic investigation could take days or weeks.

Wednesday in a Facebook Live briefing, Villanueva said the department is not considering charges against Woods.

AC found their solution in 1962, contracting Carroll Shelby to put Ford V8s in their relatively sluggish Aces to produce the beastly Cobra. The car was an immediate on-track success, as the story goes.
