The Florida Highway Patrol said Monday it is still investigating Tiger
Woods' one-car accident, but that some media reports on the details of
that investigation are incorrect.
"Contrary to various media reports, the Florida Highway Patrol has not
made any comments regarding the details of the ongoing crash
investigation involving Tiger Woods as it relates to medical
information, or any other aspect of this investigation," Florida
Highway Patrol Sgt. Kim Montes said.
So far, Woods has declined three times to speak to police about the
accident near his home early Friday evening, and speculation on the
circumstances of the crash is rampant in the traditional media and on
the Internet. While the Florida Highway Patrol does not indicate any particular
report or media outlet as incorrect, the statement appears directed at TMZ.com's report earlier Monday that investigators are pursuing a
search warrant to review Woods' medical records from Health Center
Hospital in Ocoee, Fla., where Woods was treated after the accident.
TMZ now says that police have not formally sought a warrant, but that
investigators are still pursuing one. TMZ also reported that two
Florida Highway Patrol troopers visited Health Center Hospital on
The Florida Highway Patrol said that charges in the accident are
"pending" and that the police will not be available for in-person
interviews with media outlets.
"At this time, the agency has not scheduled a press conference, and the
FHP is not conducting any on-camera, recorded or telephone interviews,"
Montes said. "All updates will be sent via email."
