ANGOLA, Indiana (AP) — A newspaper is reporting that the wife of a professional golfer from Indiana was killed in a car crash.

Beth Smith, of Peru, Ind., wife of PGA Tour player Chris Smith, was killed Sunday when the sport-utility vehicle she was traveling in collided with a Greyhound bus transporting a Canadian semipro football team, The News-Sentinel of Fort Wayne reported.

Abigail and Cameron Smith, who the newspaper identified as Smith’s children, were listed in critical condition Monday morning at Fort Wayne’s Lutheran Hospital.

Angola Fire Department spokesman T.R. Hagerty said the crash killed an occupant of the SUV. The Stueben County Sheriff’s Department would not immediately confirm who was killed in the crash along Interstate 69 near Angola, in which 12 others suffered minor injuries.

Chris Smith is a Peru resident and has been competing on the PGA Tour since 1991.
