American golfer Bill Haas was involved in a deadly car crash between a Ferrari and a BMW and was lucky to be left alive. The unfortunate accident left one person dead and two injured, according to Los Angeles police.

The 35-year-old golfer was a passenger in the Ferrari which collided with a BMW in the Pacific Palisades area.

The Ferrari's driver, a personal friend of Mr Haas, was unfortunately pronounced dead at the scene while Haas and a 50-year-old female also present in the car were taken to hospital. The golfer’s father, Jay Haas, claimed his son has pain in his leg but no broken bones.

It is expected that the world number 67, who plays on the PGA Tour Champions, will make a full recovery.

"Bill was very fortunate," Jay Haas said about his son.

Another car, driven by actor Luke Wilson (brother of Owen) was also hit by the Ferrari just before the crash, but it had only minor scratches.

Detective Jeff Fischer of the Los Angeles Police Department: "I can confirm Luke Wilson was driving the vehicle, the Toyota FJ that was travelling northbound. His vehicle just basically got clipped by the Ferrari. Mr Bill Haas was the passenger in the Ferrari."
