Tacubaya Metro: a train crash in Mexico City leaves 1 dead and at least 41 injured

The two-meter collision in the Mexico City underground subway network left at the end of Tuesday one dead and at least 41 wounded, according to local authorities

The accident occurred around 23:37 local time at the Tacubaya station of Line 1 of the Collective Transportation System (STC), which is located west of the Mexican capital.
Although the causes of the accident are unknown, some survivors told local media that the train was in the direction of the Observatory, when it began to move in reverse, violently impacting the train that was stopped at the station.

The televised images showed one of the orange trains on top of the other after the collision.
The mayor of Mexico City, Claudia Sheinbaum, said emergency services attended to 41 people, including the two drivers, and reported the death of a man .
The subway accident in Tacubaya has not been the first of the transport network. The worst accident that recalls the city happened on October 20, 1975 at the Viaducto station.
31 people died and there were more than 70 seriously injured.
