According to the an NBC report:
Police in Cordoba said that a call came in just after midnight about an accident involving a cargo truck and a Chevy Spin. The Chevy driver – Francis’ 35-year-old nephew, Emanuel Bergoglio – is in intensive care in an induced coma after suffering a variety of injuries including liver trauma and a fractured femur, police said. Bergoglio’s wife, 36-year-old Carmona Valeria, and eight-month-old son Jose died at the scene. Bergoglio’s two-year-old, Antonio, later died at the hospital, police added.
The accident occurred between the cities of Rosario and Cordoba, apparently as the family was returning to Buenos Aires following a holiday weekend.”
Vatican spokesman Rev Federico Lombardi said in a statement “The Pope was informed about the tragic accident. He is deeply pained,” adding Pope Francis had asked “all who share in his grief to unite with him in prayer.”
