Golfer Bill Haas from Greenville, South Carolina sustained leg injuries during a rollover wreck. The fatal multi-vehicle accident occurred on Tuesday evening around 6:30 pm in Pacific Palisades, California, and involved three separate vehicles, including one driven by actor Luke Wilson. A car driven by a 50-year-old woman collided with the Ferrari in which Bill Haas was a passenger. Due to the impact of the collision, the Ferrari rolled over, fatally injuring the driver who Haas was staying with in preparation for a tournament and causing serious injuries for Haas. Luke Wilson escaped the rollover wreck unscathed. Sources say that Haas, whose injuries are less severe than initially suspected, plans to return to Greenville to recuperate.
Rollover wrecks for any vehicle may bring catastrophic results for any parties involved. Neck and spinal cord injuries are common as well as a host of other injuries and fatalities, too. Speeding may be a contributing factor in a rollover accident, but some vehicles like SUVs tend to overturn during crashes.
