New York (CNN) - State police in Florida planned Monday to further investigate a single-vehicle crash involving pro golfer Tiger Woods, they said.
That followed a police announcement Sunday that Woods had canceled a third interview with investigators.
Woods suffered minor injuries in the accident, which occurred early Friday in his luxury neighborhood near Orlando. In a statement issued Sunday afternoon on his Web site, Woods offered no details of his wreck, except to say he had cuts and bruises and was "pretty sore."
"This situation is my fault, and it's obviously embarrassing to my family and me," he said. "I'm human, and I'm not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn't happen again."
CNN senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin spoke about why Tiger Woods might be delaying talking to police.
CNN: Why do you think Tiger Woods has canceled three interviews with police?
Jeffrey Toobin: Tiger Woods is under no legal obligation to speak with police. The Fifth Amendment gives everyone an absolute right to refuse to talk to them. He may be counting on the fact that if no new news emerges, everybody will move on.
CNN: Can the police do anything about it if Woods continues to refuse to talk to them?
Toobin: The police don't have a lot of options. If someone doesn't want to talk to you, you as a police officer can't do anything about it. In theory, they could get a search warrant, but you need probable cause that a crime took place, and at this point, I don't see anything that would justify it.
