Luke Wilson, Golfer Bill Haas Involved in Fatal 3-Car Crash

Bill Haas involved in fatal car crash near Riviera Country Club

Pro golfer Bill Haas was injured in a fatal auto crash on Tuesday night.

The 46-year-old actor was driving his Toyota SUV on Chautauqua Boulevard in the Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, at around 6.30pm when a Ferrari clipped his vehicle before colliding into a BMW.

The Ferrari's driver, who died at the scene, was identified by coroner's officials as Mark William Gibello, 71, a resident of Pacific Palisades.

Actor Luke Wilson's auto was hit by the Ferrari carrying pro golfer Bill Haas.

Haas, who was slated to play in the Genesis Open this upcoming weekend was involved in a vehicle accident Tuesday night.

On the eve of the Genesis Open, tragic news involving one of the most well-liked players on the PGA Tour from one of the most well-respected golf families rocked Riviera on Wednesday.

Haas, who had been in the passenger seat of a Ferrari, had pain and swelling in his legs, but no broken bones and is returning home to SC to recuperate.

Police said Wilson's Toyota was clipped at about 6.30pm on Tuesday by the Ferrari that Haas, 35, was travelling in as a passenger.

Sadly, it was confirmed that there was one fatality in the collision and it was the driver of the Ferrari that Haas was a passenger in.

Haas, who reached a career-high 12th in the world golf rankings in 2012, is now ranked 67th.

"Bill was very fortunate", Jay said.

He says Wilson, whose vehicle was only clipped in the three-car collision, "was the hero" and "led the charge" in helping the victims. He told TMZ that Wilson immediately ran over to get the woman out. A 50-year-old woman in the BMW was also seriously injured, but she was helped by Wilson.

Neither Wilson nor Heirigs was hurt.

He said: "I would say he (Luke) was heroic in leading the charge on how to get her out".

Haas who was hospitalized but escaped serious injury, withdrew from the Genesis Open starting Thursday. Wilson, whose movies include "The Royal Tenenbaums", is the brother of fellow actors Owen and Andrew Wilson.

Haas, whose father is a nine-time PGA Tour victor, represented the United States three times at the Presidents Cup, a biennial competition between the US and an worldwide team of players from the rest of the world excluding Europe. And his great uncle, Bob Goalby, won the 1968 Masters.
