Professional golfer Bill Haas, actor Luke Wilson involved in fatal Ferrari crash

Actor Luke Wilson is being hailed for his heroics in a moment of terror after he was involved in a fatal crash with a Ferrari in Los Angeles Tuesday night.

Heirigs said Wilson feared the smoke coming from the woman's auto could result in flames and chose to save her.

"At one point, [Wilson] was like, 'Let's get her out of here, it smells like smoke.' You don't know if it's going to blow up or not", Heirigs said.

Although Wilson and Heirigs escaped the vehicle crash unharmed, the unidentified woman is seriously injured and she has been admitted to a hospital, reported Daily Mail.

Tattoo artist Sean Heirigs says he was directly behind the Ferrari and saw the whole accident and told his 14-year-old daughter to call 911. Haas, who had been in the passenger seat of the Ferrari, was not seriously injured but is returning home to SC to recuperate.

Haas, a six-time PGA Tour victor and the son of professional golfer Jay Haas, was here for the Genesis Open, which will be played at Riviera Golf Course in Pacific Palisades starting Thursday.

"We pried it open, she was able to unbuckle herself, and Luke started to pull her out from the back".

"I believe the cause [of death] was a high rate of speed and the individual lost control, colliding into several vehicles", said Officer Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department.

Haas, who was slated to play in the Genesis Open this upcoming weekend was involved in a auto accident Tuesday night. Wilson was not hurt.

The Ferrari driver, Mark William Gibello, 71, who died at the scene, was a member of the family that Haas was staying with.

Haas, who reportedly did not suffer any serious injuries and was released from an area hospital, withdrew from the tournament to go back home to North Carolina to be with his family.

A police spokesman said Wilson was in one of the cars, but had no information on his condition.

Gibello's passenger was pro golfer Bill Haas, who was in town for the Genesis Open.

"Bill was very fortunate", Jay Haas added.

A message seeking comment was left for a representative for Wilson, star of films including "Legally Blonde", "Idiocracy" and "The Royal Tenenbaums".

Haas, whose father is a nine-time PGA Tour victor, represented the United States three times at the Presidents Cup, a biennial competition between the USA and an global team of players from the rest of the world excluding Europe. His father won nine times on the PGA Tour and his great uncle, Bob Goalby, won the 1968 Masters.
