Chile says 3 youth soccer players killed in bus crash

SANTIAGO, Chile — Authorities say three children were killed and at least 20 other people were injured when a bus carrying a Chilean youth soccer team crashed with another bus in Argentina.

The early Friday crash happened in a road in the Andes cordillera near the city of Mendoza.

The Colo Colo Lo Boza soccer school, based in the Chilean capital, was traveling to a youth tournament in Paraguay. The school is certified by Chile's first-division club Colo Colo.
