On Tuesday, Bill Haas was involved in a horrific car accident, where the driver of the vehicle tragically died according to Golf Digest. Haas is expected to make a full recovery soon, but the loss of the driver who was a family friend of his has to be soul crushing.
Mark Gibello, the diver of the Ferrari that he and Haas were in, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash. He was 71-years-old.
The other vehicle that was involved, was driven by a 50-year-old woman who is currently anonymous. There was also another vehicle involved which was driven by actor Luke Wilson. Wilson, like Haas, sustained no major injuries.
Due to being shaken up by the accident, Haas, a six-time PGA Tour champion will withdraw from the Genesis Open at Riviera. Haas’ manager, Allen Hobbs released a statement regarding the accident.
“Last night in Pacific Palisades, California, Bill Haas was involved in a serious car accident in which the driver—a member of the family with whom Haas and his family were staying for the Genesis Open—was killed. Hobbs said according to Golf Digest. “While Bill escaped serious injuries and has been released from the hospital, he is understandably shaken up and—more importantly—his deepest condolences go out to the host family during this tragic and difficult time.“
Just a terrible time for everyone involved. Let this remind you to hold on to your loved ones tightly. Wishing those who were affected the best, going forward.
