SAO PAULO (AP) -- Brazilian officials say an Argentine reporter covering the World Cup has been killed in a car accident caused when a vehicle being chased by police slammed into his taxi.

Police inspector Paulo Roberto Poli tells the Globo TV network that Jorge Luis Lopez flew out of the car and hit a concrete wall, killing him instantly. The cab driver suffered minor injuries. The three occupants of the stolen car were arrested.

Lopez was working for Argentine sports daily Ole and La Red radio station in Buenos Aires.

He was the second Argentine journalist killed in a road accident while covering the World Cup.

Last week, Maria Soledad Fernandez was killed when the car she was riding in lost control and went over a cliff.
