Pro golfer Bill Haas was harmed Tuesday night when the Ferrari he was roving in struck mixed cars and flipped over — killing the driver.
Haas was in the newcomer chair of the dark-red Ferrari when it rolled over on a Los Angeles street just before 6:30 p.m. internal time.
The driver, identified as Mark Gibello, died at the scene.
The lethal pile-up began along North Chautauqua Boulevard in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades section, when the Ferrari sideswiped a Toyota SUV driven by actor Luke Wilson.
“His automobile fundamentally just got clipped by the Ferrari,” Detective Jeff Fischer of the Los Angeles Police Department told KTLA of the “Old School” actor. Wilson, 46, didn’t humour any critical injuries.
The southbound Ferrari crashed into a BMW that was streamer north moments later.
The BMW flipped on its side and slid up against a parked car, according to internal ABC associate KABC.
It wasn’t immediately transparent how quick possibly automobile was going at the time.
