Golfer Bill Haas, Luke Wilson involved in deadly rollover crash

Former FedEx Cup champion Bill Haas was injured in a multi-car crash Tuesday night near Los Angeles in Pacific Palisades, Calif.

According to the celebrity news site, a driver behind the wheel of a Ferrari sideswiped Wilson's Toyota SUV before hitting a BMW, in which Haas was a passenger.

A statement from the PGA Tour and Haas' manager, Allen Hobbs, identified the driver in Tuesday night's "serious vehicle accident" as a member of a family with whom Haas was staying for the Genesis Open.

The PGA said that Haas, a six-time victor on the PGA Tour, will withdraw from the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club. Two passengers in the BMW were hospitalized with serious injuries, the station reported. The accident took place just before 6:30 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. Meanwhile, a third vehicle, driven by Luke Wilson, was also side-swiped by the Ferrari before the major collision. The driver of the Ferrari, whose name has not been released, was killed.

Haas' father, Jay, later told Golf Channel that his son had been released from UCLA Medical Center with pain and swelling in his legs, but no broken bones, and was expected to make a full recovery. Both were in serious condition. He added that Haas will be heading home to Greenville, South Carolina, rather than play in the Genesis Open, which starts at Riviera Golf Course in Pacific Palisades Thursday.
