Golfer Bill Haas and Luke Wilson in LA crash

Golfer Bill Haas and actor Luke Wilson have been involved in a fiery pile-up in LA which left one person dead.

Haas, 35, was 'seriously injured' in the crash, according to KTLA, while Legally Blonde star Wilson, 46, escaped unharmed.

The crash involved a Ferrari, a BMW and two other cars in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood at 6.31pm on Tuesday evening (2.31am GMT on Wednesday).

Haas, who had been practicing for a golf tournament nearby, was a passenger in the Ferrari which police said was 'travelling at speed'. The 71-year-old male driver of the sports car, Mark Gibello, was hosting Haas at his nearby family home for the golf competition. He died at the scene of the accident.

Legally Blonde star Wilson's car was 'clipped' as a result of the crash and he escaped uninjured. An unidentified 50-year-old woman who was driving the BMW has also been taken to hospital. 

'I believe the cause [of the Ferrari driver’s death] was a high rate of speed and the individual lost control, colliding into several vehicles,' Officer Mike Lopez of the Los Angeles Police Department told the Palisades Post.
