Woods drove out under a steep hill at a point where there are widenings on the side of the road for heavy vehicles having difficulty controlling their car after a downhill.
The place has become known for its fatal crashes.
In addition, severe speeding has been measured on the road.

“Apparently the first contact was on the middle platform of the road, from where the car crashed over the opposite lane, hit a curb and a tree and spun around the slope several times,” County Sheriff Alex Villanueva commented at the press conference.
The car ended up on its side, several tens of meters from the point of impact.

According to the sheriff, Woods was driving at a “harder speed than normal” at the time of the accident.
The golfer did not appear to be intoxicated.
According to Villanueva, it does not appear that Woods tried to slow down the speed of his car before a fatal run-out.
“Woods was very lucky to survive,” Deputy Sheriff Carlos Gonzales told news agency AFP.
