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.

Officials said the crash is being investigated.

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.
