Wilson was in a third vehicle, an SUV, when the crash took place. His vehicle was “impacted” by the Ferrari, but there were no injuries, an LAPD spokesperson said. Wilson wasn’t hurt.
Haas, 35, was treated at a hospital and was later released, his manager told Fox. Haas was shaken up and withdrew from this week’s Genesis Open in Los Angeles, he said.
“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 Tour said Wednesday.
“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,” the statement noted.
The crash is under investigation. Other details weren’t clear.

Wilson, who is the brother of actor Owen Wilson, hasn’t released a statement about the crash.
Detective Jeff Fischer of the LAPD told KTLA: “I can confirm Luke Wilson was driving the vehicle, the Toyota FJ that was traveling northbound.”
He added: “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.”
