(CNN) — A car crash in Argentina killed three members of Pope Francis’ extended family Tuesday — including his 8-month-old and 2-year-old grand-nephews — and seriously injured another, police said.

A car driven by the pope’s nephew Emanuel Horacio Bergoglio struck a truck on a highway in Cordoba at about 12:30 a.m., Cordoba police spokeswoman Carina Ferreyra said.

Emanuel Bergoglio’s sons — Jose Bergoglio, 8 months, and Antonio Bergoglio, 2 — and his wife and the boys’ mother, Valeria Carmona, 36, died, police said.

Emanuel Bergoglio was taken to a hospital in Cordoba, where he was in critical condition Tuesday morning, Ferreyra said.
