The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will not file any charges against Tiger Woods for actions leading to the single-vehicle accident that left the 15-time major winner with serious leg injuries, according to ESPN.

"He was not drunk," L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said Wednesday on Instagram Live. "We can throw that one out."

Law enforcement is considering the incident "purely an accident," which could result in a misdemeanor at most.

The sheriff's department also said there was "no evidence of impairment" when officers first arrived at the crash site on Tuesday.

Woods was on his way to a content shoot for Golf Digest/GOLF TV when he lost control of his SUV and hit the center median on a stretch of road near Rolling Hills Estates that's considered a trouble spot, about 30 miles south of L.A.

Tiger suffered severe leg injuries, including a shattered right ankle and multiple "open fractures" to his lower right leg, and was taken to UCLA Medical Center for immediate surgery.

Woods' team released a statement Wednesday morning saying the 45-year-old was "awake, responsive, and recovering in his hospital room."
