Born actor Luke Wilson helped injured in fatal auto crash”

The "Old School" actor's Toyota SUV was one of several vehicles hit by a Ferrari near the Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California, on Tuesday evening after the sports auto - whose driver was killed, while its passenger, golfer Bill Haas was in pain but not seriously injured - lost control while "travelling at a high-rated speed".

Pro golfer Bill Haas was also involved in the accident as a passenger in the Ferrari, and was able to survive with several injuries. According to report, Wilson, whose own auto was clipped in the three-vehicle accident, also involving a Ferrari, pulled a 50-year-old woman from the wreckage of her BMW. An eyewitness told People that, as soon as the Ferrari came to a stop, Luke leapt from his auto to help save the stranger, whose leg was pinned in her wrecked vehicle. "He went in through the trunk and pulled her out".

"I would say [Luke] was heroic in leading the charge on how to get her out", witness Sean Heirigs told the Press Association.

Actor Luke Wilson attends the "Arizona" Premiere during 2018 Sundance Film Festival at Egyptian Theatre on January 20, 2018 in Park City, Utah. Her leg was trapped in the twisted vehicle after it flipped during the collision.

Sean Heirigs, who witnessed the accident, told The Hollywood Reporter he and Wilson helped the woman, 50, out of her smoking vehicle after the accident. Heirigs said, "At one point, [Wilson] was like, 'Let's get her out of here, it smells like smoke.' You don't know if it's going to blow up or not".

Although Wilson and Heirigs escaped the vehicle crash unharmed, the unidentified woman is seriously injured and she has been admitted to a hospital, reported Daily Mail. Wilson then jumped into action with another bystander to pull the woman out of the auto and to the safety of the curb.

Wilson figured out they could remove the woman through the back of her auto and he and Heirigs removed her.

Heirigs had high praise for Wilson.

"He was calm. He was definitely a hero, [a] super nice guy", Sean added. The woman from the BMW is hospitalized with serious injuries.

Haas' manager Allen Hobbs says the golfer was treated at a hospital and released.
