JACKSON, MISS. (AP) - The agent for Ken Green says the Champions Tour golfer who was hurt in a car crash will have his lower right leg amputated below the knee.

The surgery set for Monday comes a week after Green’s brother and girlfriend were killed in the accident in eastern Mississippi.

Kevin Richardson told The Associated Press Sunday that doctors had hoped Green could keep the leg, but there was too much damage. The 50-year-old Green hopes to someday make a return to the golf course with the help of a prosthetic limb.

William Y. Green, of Indiantown, Fla., and Jean Marie Hodgin, of Greensboro, N.C., were killed in the wreck.

Authorities say the right front tire on Ken Green’s recreational vehicle blew out on Interstate 20 near Hickory, Miss. The RV went down a steep embankment and hit a tree.
