Luke Wilson and golfer Bill Haas involved in fatal vehicle crash

Los Angeles police told television station KTLA that Haas was a passenger in a Ferrari that wrecked in Pacific Palisades, Calif., near Riviera Country Club, where Haas was scheduled to play in this weekend's Genesis Open.

The PGA Tour said the driver of the auto who died was a member of the family that was hosting Haas during the Genesis Open golf tournament.

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. The PGA statement said that the person killed was a member of the family hosting Haas and his family for this weekend's Genesis Open.

Fischer said the damage to Wilson's vehicle is minor.

While fire department officials did not provide the victims' names, Fischer told the affiliate that Haas, 35, was one of two people injured. Haas and the 50-year-old woman driving the BMW were rushed to the hospital.

Wilson, 46, wasn't seriously injured in the crash, KTLA reported.

The Ferrari in which, Haas was a passenger, rolled six times.

The 35-year-old Haas was taken to the hospital, suffering from pain and swelling in his legs.

Haas, though, has withdrawn from this week's tournament and will return home to Greenville, N.C., according to a statement by the PGA Tour and Haas' agent, Allen Hobbs of Players Group Management.

The world number 67 is expected to make a full recovery.
