An overpass for Mexico City’s metro partially collapsed with train cars on it on Monday night, videos on Mexican television and social media showed, although it was not immediately clear if there were injuries or any fatalities.
Mexico City mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said on Twitter she was headed towards the scene of the accident.
Trasladándome en este momento al sitio del incidente de la línea 12. Informó en cuanto llegue.
