MEXICO CITY (AP) — Authorities say an overpass in Mexico City's metro has collapsed, sending a train plunging downward, trapping cars under rubble and killing at least 13 people.

Mexico City's civil protection agency tweeted that almost 70 people were injured in the accident in the south of Mexico's capital, which happened at 10:30 p.m. local time.

Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum rushed to the area.
