Argentinean journalist Jorge “Topo” López who was working for La Red Radio at the World Cup in Brazil died today after the taxi he was travelling in was hit by a stolen vehicle that was being pursued by the Military Police.

The 38-year old reporter was heading back to his hotel around 1.30 am when the taxi was struck by a fleeing vehicle at Tiradentes and Barao de Mauá crossing in Sao Paulo.

López’s body flew out of the vehicle as a consequence of the crash, while the driver suffered injuries on his shoulder.

The three occupants of the stolen car, two of them teenagers, were unharmed and arrested by the police.

This tragedy comes a week after the daughter of renowned Argentinean football reporter Miguel “Tití” Fernández, María Soledad Fernández, was killed during a similar road accident in northern Brazil.
