Actor Luke Wilson and Pro Golfer Bill Haas Involved in Fatal Car Accident

Actor Luke Wilson and PGA golfer Bill Haas have been involved in a fatal car crash in Los Angeles, as reported by KTLA 5.

Wilson is said to have been driving a Toyota SUV that was sideswiped by a Ferrari, just before the Italian sports car crashed into a BMW containing several passengers, all of whom were injured.

The driver of the Ferrari, 71-year-old Mark Gibello, was pronounced dead at the scene, with occupant Haas facing injury.

Wilson did not suffer any injuries, with the Los Angeles Police Department noting “his vehicle basically just got clipped by the Ferrari.”

Haas, on the other hand, was transferred to the hospital for minor injuries, but has since been released. He was in town to participate in the Genesis Open golf tournament at the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, but has since withdrawn from the tournament.

“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,” a statement from the PGA read.

The pro golfer has returned home to South Carolina.
