FOX News reports Woods was running late when he left the hotel after waiting for his Genesis courtesy car from the valet.
Woods has a contract with Discovery networks to be behind-the-scenes videos and "teaching lessons" with various stars. He had an early morning shoot at the Rolling Hills Country Club, FOX News reports. The crews and Woods' handler were already at the shooting location to get things ready and had been waiting for at least an hour before finding out about the crash, FOX News reports.
FOX 11's Bill Melugin said that an LASD source told him that drugs and alcohol did not appear to be contributing factors in the crash.
