ORLANDO, Fla. — A trooper investigating Tiger Woods' car crash told a dispatcher from the scene that the world's No. 1 golfer wasn't intoxicated during the accident.
The trooper also says on the new recordings released Thursday by the Florida Highway Patrol that Woods had only "minor injuries."
The dispatcher asks, "Was he doing anything he shouldn't have been doing?" The trooper responded, "No, he's good."
FHP closed its inquiry into the crash days after the Nov. 27 accident outside the central Florida mansion of Woods and his wife, Elin. Woods was charged with careless driving, which carries a $164 fine and four points on his driving record.
Woods has taken an indefinite leave from golf after he admitted to marital infidelity.
