Tragedy struck in Argentina today. Deaths continue away from the limelight of Ferguson, Gaza, and Tiburon.
A car crash in Argentina killed three members of Pope Francis' family on Tuesday, August 19, 2014, at about 12:30 a.m. A truck struck the car the nephew was driving on a highway in Córdoba.
Police say two of the Pope's grand-nephews and the boys' mother died in the crash that left the pontiff's nephew, Emanuel Horacio Bergoglio, 38, in critical condition. The Bergoglio's Chevrolet is shown above.
Killed were Bergoglio's sons - 8-month-old Jose and 2-year-old Antonio -- and his wife, Valeria Carmona, 39.
Pope Francis, the former Jorge Mario Bergoglio, served the Roman Catholic Church in Argentina for 43 years, including 15 years as archbishop of Buenos Aires. He succeeded Pope Benedict XVI as leader of the church in March 2013.
