By Christopher Weber, Associated Press. Wednesday, Feb. 14, 2018 | 8:28 a.m. LOS ANGELES — Professional golfer Bill Haas was hospitalized but escaped serious injuries following a rollover crash in Los Angeles that killed the driver of the Ferrari he was riding in and injured the driver of a BMW

Jay Haas, the golfer's father, told Golf Channel that his son has pain and swelling in one of his legs.

''Bill was very fortunate,'' he said.

Police were investigating whether speed was a factor in the crash. The driver of the BMW, a 50-year-old woman, was hospitalized in serious condition, Stoughton said.

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

Haas is a six-time winner on the PGA Tour whose most prominent victory was at the Tour Championship in 2011, which enabled him to win the FedEx Cup and the $10 million bonus. His most famous shot was in a playoff at the Tour Championship, when his ball was partially submerged in the lake.

He comes from a prominent golfing family. His father won nine times on the PGA Tour and 18 times on the PGA Tour Champions. His uncle, Jerry Haas, briefly played on the PGA Tour and is the golf coach at Wake Forest. And his great uncle, Bob Goalby, won the 1968 Masters.
