Golfer Bill Haas injured in fatal auto crash

Fisher said: 'I can confirm Luke Wilson was driving the vehicle, the Toyota FJ that was travelling northbound.

The crash, which happened in the 500 block of North Chautauqua Boulevard in Pacific Palisades around 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, left one person dead and two others injured. The passenger of the Ferrari was transported to a local hospital in serious condition, according to officials. It's owned by actor Luke Wilson, Fischer said.

Officials are not considering alcohol to be a factor at this time.

Golf Digest reported that Haas was in the area for this weekend's Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club.


A patent from the Los Angeles Fire Department said the two people injured, a 35-year-old male and a 50-year-old female were "both in serious condition".

Wilson was driving an SUV that was "clipped" by the Ferrari prior to the wreck, Los Angeles Detective Jeff Fischer told KTLA.

Thousands of well-wishers have taken to Twitter after hearing of the fatal accident.

He went on: "Mr Bill Haas was the passenger in the Ferrari". According to Golf Channel, the driver of the Ferrari, 71, was a friend of Haas.
