At least 15 people are believed to be dead and dozens more injured after a Mexico City metro train overpass collapsed Monday night, according to authorities.

Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum said that "A support beam gave way."

The accident occurred at approximately 10:30 PM local time.

Civil protection officials tweeted that 34 people were taken to hospitals and at least 15 people were dead.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the accident occurred on the Metro’s Line 12 and the construction of the project has been dogged by “complaints and accusations of irregularities.”

This is a developing story.
