At least 15 people were killed and 70 injured when a metro overpass crashed into a road in Mexico City on Monday night, officials said.

The crash, which occurred at 10:30 pm local time, left passengers in a car and a stray train stranded in mid-air. Video on social media And Mexico television showed. Emergency crews worked to recover those passengers.

Mayor Claudia Shenbum May said 15 people were killed, according to preliminary figures, and a beam broke just as the train was passing over it. The train was divided into two parts.

According to the Associated Press, rescue efforts were temporarily disrupted at midnight as the partially suspended train was “too weak” and a crane had to be brought in. People were still trapped in the train, but “we don’t know if they are alive,” Sheenbaum said.
