    (CNN) -- Two of Pope Francis' grandnephews and the boys' mother were killed early Tuesday in a car crash in the pontiff's homeland of Argentina, police said.

    The pontiff's nephew, Emanuel Horacio Bergoglio, was critically injured in the crash on a highway in Cordoba, said Carina Ferreyra, spokeswoman of Cordoba police.

    A car driven by Bergoglio struck a truck at about 12:30 a.m., Ferreyra said.

    The crash killed Bergoglio's sons Jose Bergoglio, 8 months, and Antonio Bergoglio, 2 -- and his wife, Valeria Carmona, 36.

    Emanuel Bergoglio, 35, was taken to a hospital in Cordoba, where he was in critical condition Tuesday morning, Ferreyra said...

    Pope Francis's great-nephews and their mother killed in car crash in Argentina | Mail Online

    (snip)

    The deaths came after Francis last night gave himself only another 'two or three years' to live.

    'I see it as the generosity of the people of God. I try to think of my sins, my mistakes, not to become proud. Because I know it will last only a short time,' he said.

    Then, apparently light-heartedly, he added: 'Two or three years and then I'll be off to the Father's House.'

    While the 77-year-old pope has not spoken publicly before about when he might die, a Vatican source said he had previously told those close to him that he thought he only had a few years left.
