Cape Town - American golfer Bill Haas was a passenger in a car crash which left one person dead and two injured, Los Angeles police have said.

According to the BBC website, Haas, 35, was a passenger in a Ferrari which was involved in a collision with a BMW in the Pacific Palisades area at 18.31 on Tuesday.

The driver of the Ferrari, named as 71-year-old Mark Gibello, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said world No 67 Haas was "doing OK".

A SUV driven by actor Luke Wilson - brother of Owen - was sideswiped by the Ferrari just before the crash.

A statement from the Los Angeles Fire Department said the two people injured - a 35-year-old male and the 50-year-old female driver of the BMW - were "both in a serious condition" and were transferred to hospital.

Haas, a six-time winner on the PGA Tour, was set to play in the PGA Tour's Genesis Open, at the nearby Riviera Country Club, starting on Thursday, but has withdrawn to return to his Greenville, South Carolina home to recover.
