In Mexico City on May 3, an overpass on the city’s metro system collapsed as a train crossed, causing two train cars to fall onto the roadway below. At least 23 people were killed and 65 were injured, both on the train and on the road. Investigators believe that an iron girder under the overpass, which is less than a decade old, gave way, leading to the collapse.
