The incident happened at 10:25 p.m. local time, according to Mexico City’s Interior Minister Alfonso Suarez Del Real.
Mexico City’s Mayor, Claudia Sheinbaum, has arrived at the scene of the accident. “Firefighters, public safety personnel are working. Various hospitals are serving. We will give more information shortly,” she said on her official Twitter account.
Speaking at the scene, Sheinbaum said a car remained trapped under the rubble of the overpass but rescue efforts were temporarily suspended as the subway was still dangling and unstable.
The mayor said emergency service crews were waiting for a crane to arrive before they could continue rescue efforts
