Argentine sports journalist Jorge Lopez was killed early on Wednesday after his taxi was hit by a stolen car fleeing police, making him the second reporter from his country to die in a wreck in Brazil during the World Cup.

Lopez died at the scene of the accident in downtown Guarulhos and the taxi driver was injured, a police spokeswoman said. Police later detained three people who were in the stolen black Nissan in the city, which is 12 miles (20 km) from Sao Paulo and is home to Brazil’s busiest airport.
