ANGOLA, Ind. — Authorities have confirmed that the wife of PGA Tour golfer Chris Smith was killed in a head-on collision in northeastern Indiana over the weekend.

Steuben County Coroner Rodney Snyder says the badly burned body of 42-year-old Beth Smith of Peru, Ind., was identified using dental records.

Smith’s children, 16-year-old Abigail and 12-year-old Cameron, were listed in critical condition Monday at a Fort Wayne hospital. Steuben County Sheriff’s Sgt. Philip Nott said Tuesday no further information was being released about the children because of privacy laws.

Nott said an investigation into Sunday’s crash is continuing. Authorities say Abigail Smith was driving a sport utility vehicle that crossed the median and struck a Greyhound bus carrying members of a Canadian football team, the London Silverbacks. More than 20 people were hurt.
