A pro golfer was involved in a rollover crash near Greenacres in Palm Beach County that left the driver of a Ferrari dead and the pro golfer injured, according to reports.
The golfer was driving in Palm Beach County when a Ferrari clipped his car. The Ferrari then collided with a BMW and overturned, FHP reported. The driver of the Ferrari, identified as 71-year-old man, was pronounced dead at the scene, fire officials told news reporters.
The driver of the BMW, a 50-year-old woman, was hospitalized with serious injuries. Her name has not been released.
“Last night in Palm Beach County a pro golfer was involved in a serious car accident. The driver of the Ferrari was killed,” Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said in a joint statement.
“While the golfer 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,” a representative said in a statement.
The investigation is still ongoing.
Accident attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded to this unfortunate crash. “This is a serious accident involving a pro gulfer, which ultimately, resulted in the death of one person. We hope the investigators can quickly determine what caused the accident so that the family and friends of the victim can have a closure. Please be careful and obey the speed limits whenever you are driving a motorcycle, car, SUV or truck. We hope that all parties involved consult with an experienced trial lawyer.
