BALCARCE, ARGENTINA (AP) - Argentine driver Guido Falaschi was killed in a crash at Juan Manuel Fangio track during the final lap of a race in the most popular motor sport competition in the South American country.

Race officials and a doctor confirmed the death Sunday of the 22-year-old Falaschi in the event known as Turismo de Carretera.

The accident took place when Falaschi lost control, hit a retaining wall made of tires, swerved back onto the track and was struck by a car driven by Nestor Girolami.

Girolami was in stable condition at a hospital.
