Luke Wilson was indirectly involved in a car crash in California on Tuesday, that left the driver of a Ferrari dead.

According to E! News, the late driver’s passenger, golfer Bill Haas, also sustained some injuries in the fatal incident.

Luke was driving north on Chautauqua Blvd. in the Pacific Palisades when the Ferrari sideswiped his Toyota SUV, and then collided with a BMW.

Local news affiliate KABC have reported that the 50-year-old driver of the Ferrari was pronounced dead at the scene.

Meanwhile Bill Haas, who is a six-time PGA Tour winner, and the woman driving the BMW were taken to the hospital. LAPD Detective Jeff Fischer told KTLA that the golfer was “doing OK.”

The fatal crash is currently under investigation, and a spokesperson from the L.A.P.D. Media Relations department told E! News that as of right now, police do not know if alcohol or any other substances were involved.

“Last night in Pacific Palisades, Calif., 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 for the Genesis Open—was killed,” Bill’s manager, Allen Hobbs, told Golf Digest in a statement Wednesday morning.

“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.”

“Bill will withdraw from the Genesis Open and plans to head home to Greenville to recover. He appreciates the support of friends, family and the golf world as a whole, and he has asked for privacy as he processes what has happened.”

Meanwhile, actor Luke Wilson did not sustain any serious injuries.
