“`Actor Luke Wilson is being hailed as a hero in the aftermath of a Los Angeles multi-car crash on Tuesday evening that also involved golfer Bill Haas. Luke, whose own vehicle was clipped in the accident, pulled a 50-year-old woman from the smoking wreckage of her BMW. Police were investigating whether speed was a factor in the crash.


“`The driver of a Ferrari accelerated and appeared to lose control with the back end swinging into oncoming traffic. The Ferrari’s driver, who died at the scene, was Mark William Gibello of Pacific Palisades. Haas was in the passenger seat, and complained of pain and swelling in his legs, but no broken bones. He is returning home to South Carolina to recuperate.

“`Bill Harmon, the swing coach for Haas and a close friend of Gibello, said the two only met last Thursday. Harmon said Gibello was a member at Los Angeles Country Club, and was instrumental in the private club getting the Walker Cup last year, and U.S. Open in 2023.

“`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 a $10 million bonus. He comes from a prominent golfing family. His father Jay won nine times on the PGA Tour, and 18 times on the PGA Tour Champions. His uncle Jerry briefly played on the PGA Tour, and is the golf coach at Wake Forest.

“`Wilson helped the woman trapped in the car, which flipped onto the passenger’s side. Owen feared smoke coming from her BMW meant it could go up in flames and he rushed to her aid.  The woman is hospitalized with serious injuries. The Dallas-native starred in Legally Blonde, Idiocracy, and The Royal Tenenbaums. His brother is Owen Wilson.
