BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Three relatives of Pope Francis were killed early on Tuesday when their car collided with a truck in Argentina's central Cordoba province, local media reported.

A nephew of the pope, Emanuel Bergoglio, who was driving the car was in serious condition after the accident. The nephew's wife and two children aged two years and eight months died, said media citing police and hospital sources.

DYN news agency said the accident happened shortly after midnight when Begoglio's car slammed into the back of a truck carrying grains.
