Early Wednesday morning, actor Luke Wilson, the brother of Owen Wilson, was involved in a fatal car crash that left one person dead. The crash also involved professional golfer Bill Haas. The accident took place in California.
According to initial reports, the “Legally Blonde” star was driving his Toyota FJ when the accident occurred. The LAPD confirmed that the accident resulted in one death on the scene, and two others were taken to the hospital in a “serious” condition.
Detective Jeff Fischer from the LAPD said that Luke Wilson was headed northbound at the time of the accident. Reportedly, the actor Wilson was not injured.
Fischer said that the actor was “clipped by the Ferrari” that had gone out of control. The detective also confirmed that the passenger in the Ferrari was golfer Bill Haas. He was seriously injured but in “stable condition.” Sadly, the driver of the Ferrari was pronounced dead at the scene.
A BMW was involved in the accident as well, but information has not yet been revealed about who was driving that car at the time.
The Los Angeles Fire Department said that two people were sent to the hospital- a 35-year-old male and a 50-year-old female. Both were seriously injured.
Since news of the accident emerged, thousands of people on Twitter have been sharing their well-wishes for those involved.
Joel Beall said, “Bill Haas, actor Luke Wilson involved in a fatal crash. A source has confirmed with Golf Digest that Haas is ‘not good’ but is in stable condition.”
Chris Stewart said, “Golfer Bill Haas was slated to be in next week’s Honda Classic. He was seriously injured in this crash in LA overnight. The car’s driver was killed.”
Haas’ manager said that the golfer was released from the hospital, but will still be canceling his upcoming tournament, the Genesis Open.
He said, “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- was killed. 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.”
