The Palm Beach Post - - SPORTS -

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.
