Police provide update after American golfer Bill Haas involved in car crash that left one person dead
Golfer Bill Haas was a passenger in a car crash which left one person dead and two injured, police in Los Angeles have said.
Haas is believed to be "OK", a detective of the Los Angeles Police Department confirmed. Legally Blonde actor Luke Wilson was also involved in the crash.
The collision involved a Ferrari and a BMW in the Pacific Palisades neighbourhood, Los Angeles, at 6.31pm on Tuesday evening (2.31am GMT on Wednesday), according to the LAPD.
The driver of the Ferrari, in which 35-year-old Haas was travelling, was pronounced dead at the scene while two others were taken to a nearby hospital.
A car that belonged to actor Wilson, brother of Owen, was hit by the Ferrari just moments before the crash.
Detective Jeff Fi scher of the LAPD told local television station KTLA: "I can confirm Luke Wilson was driving the vehicle, the Toyota FJ that was travelling northbound. His vehicle just basically got clipped by the Ferrari.
"Mr Bill Haas was the passenger in the Ferrari. Apparently, from what I was told, he's doing OK too."
A statement from the Los Angeles Fire Department said the two people injured - a 35-year-old male and 50-year-old female - were "both in serious condition".
World number 67 Haas was due to contest this week's PGA Tour event, the Genesis Open, at the nearby Riviera Country Club.Source: Google News
