CATAMARCA, Argentina (AP) — Dos personas, entre ellas un joven periodista, fallecieron al volcar una camioneta en la que viajaban mientras cubrían el Rally Sudamérica 2014, dijo el viernes la policía de Catamarca.

El accidente se produjo la noche del jueves en una curva cerrada en el departamento de Andalgalá, a unos 220 kilómetros (136,7 millas) al norte de esta ciudad y fuera de la carretera habitual para los trabajadores de prensa, informó el comisario mayor Daniel Omar Roldán, de la seccional cuarta de Andalgalá.

El policía señaló que los muertos son Agustín Ignacio Mina, de 19 años, y Daniel Eduardo Ambrosio, de 51. Mina colaboraba para una revista especializada en Rally, mientras que Ambrosio era un entusiasta seguidor del automovilismo.

"Iban cuatro personas en una camioneta y en una curva perdieron el control y cayeron al barranco", dijo Roldan en rueda de prensa. Las otras dos personas resultaron heridas y su estado no es de gravedad, agregó el comisario, que identificó a uno de los heridos como a los fotógrafos Rodrigo de Quesada, peruano, y al argentino Martín Delgado.

Mina, Quesada y Delgado cubrían la carrera para la revista Super Rally, dijo a The Associated Press Patricia Delgado, esposa del propietario de ese medio Francisco Delgado. Al parecer, ninguno de ellos estaba acreditado oficialmente ante la organización, que no ofreció comentarios sobre el tema.

"Ambrosio era un amigo nuestro que fue como invitado", agregó telefónicamente la señora Delgado, cuyo hijo Francisco, de 31 años, es uno de los heridos. La señora Delgado, quien dijo desconocer otros detalles del accidente, habló desde Carlos Paz, ciudad cordobesa donde tiene la sede la revista Super Rally.

La sexta etapa del Rally finalizó el jueves en Tucumán, en el norte argentino. La competencia culminará el 18 de enero en la ciudad chilena de Valparaíso.
