Iran Daily - - Sports -

Six-time PGA Tour win­ner Bill Haas was in­jured in a mul­ticar crash in Pa­cific Pal­isades, Cal­i­for­nia, on Tues­day night that left one per­son dead.

Haas’ fa­ther, Jay Haas, told the Golf Chan­nel on Wed­nes­day morn­ing that the golfer was re­leased from an area hos­pi­tal with no bro­ken bones, but he has some pain and swelling in his legs, ESPN re­ported. The 35-year-old Haas is ex­pected to make a full re­cov­ery. “Last night in Pa­cific Pal­isades, Cal­i­for­nia, Bill Haas was in­volved in a se­ri­ous car ac­ci­dent in which the driver – a mem­ber of the fam­ily with whom Haas and his fam­ily were stay­ing for the Ge­n­e­sis Open – was killed,” Haas’ agent Allen Hobbs said in a state­ment.

“While Bill es­caped se­ri­ous in­juries and has been re­leased from the hos­pi­tal, he is un­der­stand­ably shaken up and – more im­por­tantly – his deep­est con­do­lences go out to the host fam­ily dur­ing this tragic and dif­fi­cult time.”

Los An­ge­les Po­lice De­tec­tive Jeff Fis­cher said that Haas was a pas­sen­ger in a Fer­rari that over­turned at ap­prox­i­mately 6:30 p.m. lo­cal time near the Riviera Coun­try Club, where the golfer was sched­uled to play in the Ge­n­e­sis Open. The driver of the Fer­rari was killed, and Haas and the driver of an­other ve­hi­cle were taken to the hos­pi­tal. Haas was listed at that time in se­ri­ous but sta­ble con­di­tion.

Fis­cher also said that ac­tor Luke Wil­son’s SUV was a third car in­volved in the wreck, but that Wil­son not suf­fer se­ri­ous in­juries.

“Bill will with­draw from the Ge­n­e­sis Open and plans to head home to Greenville (North Carolina) to re­cover,” Hobbs said. “He ap­pre­ci­ates the sup­port of friends, fam­ily and the golf world as a whole, and he has asked for pri­vacy as he pro­cesses what has hap­pened.”
