Golf pro Chris Smith’s wife killed in car wreck
ANGOLA, Ind. — Authorities say the wife of a professional golfer from Indiana was killed and his children severely injured in a crash on Interstate 69 near Angola, Ind.
The Angola Fire Department says 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.
Authorities say Beth Smith was returning from a Father’s Day visit with her family in Toledo and was driving the vehicle. Her children, Abigail and Cameron, were transported by helicopter to Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, where they were listed in critical condition late Sunday.
Chris Smith is a Peru resident and has been competing on the PGA Tour since 1991.
