The commissioner of the PGA Tour is confirming that the wife of PGA Tour golfer Chris Smith was killed and two of his children were critically injured in a weekend accident in northern Indiana. PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem said Monday that everyone's thoughts and prayers were with the Smith family.

Beth Smith was killed in Sunday's crash on Interstate 69, near Angola. Authorities say a sport utility vehicle carrying Smith and their two children collided with a Greyhound bus.

The children, Abigail and Cameron Smith, were listed in critical condition Monday morning at Fort Wayne's Lutheran Hospital.

The bus was carrying members of the London, Ontario, Silverbacks football team. In all, 11 other people were taken to area hospitals and 11 more were treated at the scene.

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