Haas injured in fatal vehicle crash near LA

Luke Wilson car accident

Bill Haas was injured in a fatal rollover auto crash Tuesday night in Pacific Palisades, Calif. Fisher says the driver of the Ferrari was killed but that Haas is "doing okay". A witness said it was a head-on crash and the driver of the Ferrari, a 71-year-old man, died.

Haas, 35, was in Pacific Palisades for the Genesis Open golf tournament.

A third vehicle, driven by actor Luke Wilson, also was involved in the crash when it was clipped by one of the other vehicles, but Wilson did not sustain serious injuries, according to the website golfdigest.com.

The fatal accident remains under investigation.

A 50-year-old woman was injured when the Ferrari struck her BMW, which flipped on its side and landed against a parked auto, according to local ABC affiliate KABC. Gibello was close friends with Haas' swing coach, Billy Harmon, and was "instrumental" in bringing the Walker Cup (2017) and U.S. Open (2023) to Los Angeles Country Club, according to Golf Channel insider Tim Rosaforte.

Haas has won six times on the PGA Tour and is the son of pro golfer Jay Haas.

Hobbs went to say that Haas, a six-time victor on the PGA Tour who has made more than $28 million in earnings in 347 career starts, plans on recovering at home.

"Bill was very fortunate", Haas told Golf Channel.

The person driving Haas was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Los Angeles-based KNBC. Two passengers in the BMW were hospitalized with serious injuries, the station reported.

"Bill will withdraw from the Genesis Open and plans to head home to Greenville to recover".
