(CNN)The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department will retrieve data from the black box in the Genesis SUV courtesy vehicle that golf legend Tiger Woods was driving before his rollover crash last week.
The department told CNN in a statement it executed a search warrant for the black box but had "no additional information regarding the recovered data. "
Speaking to USA Today, Sheriff's Deputy John Schloegl said Tuesday the development was just due diligence and he didn't consider the probe a criminal investigation.
Authorities have previously said they believe the incident was "purely an accident" but they would have to pull the black box event recorder from the vehicle to make that determination.
Woods was driving last Tuesday in Rancho Palos Verdes, near Los Angeles, shortly after 7 a. m. PT when his SUV crossed a median and veered across two lanes of road before hitting a curb, hitting a tree and landing on its side in the brush, Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said last week.
While he is recovering, Woods wrote in a Sunday tweet, "It is hard to explain how touching today was when I turned on the tv and saw all the red shirts. "
