Haas injures leg in L.A. car crash
Professional golfer Bill Haas was hospitalized but escaped serious injuries following a rollover crash in Los Angeles that killed the driver of the Ferrari he was riding in and injured the driver of a BMW, officials said Wednesday.
The two cars collided on a residential block in the wealthy Pacific Palisades neighborhood Tuesday evening, according to Los Angeles police Officer James Stoughton.
A third vehicle driven by actor Luke Wilson was clipped by the Ferrari, Stoughton said. Wilson was not hurt.
The Ferrari’s driver, who died at the scene, was a member of the family that Haas was staying with as he prepared to play in the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club, the golfer’s manager Allen Hobbs said.
Haas, 35, withdrew from the tournament and has pain and swelling in a leg.
