    Mexico City metro overpass collapses onto road; 23 dead (apnews.com)

    It's not clear what caused the collapse, however the article notes that this line was completed between 2006 and 2012, and there were allegations of poor design and construction. It also suggests that an earthquake in 2017 might have weakened the structure.

    Sounds like poor construction, although it has been up for 10+ years.

    Lessons to be learnt.
