Freight car derails in Mexico, falls on house, killing 5
Mexico City: A freight car carrying bulk corn derailed on Friday in the northern suburbs of Mexico City, rolled over and crushed part of a house by the side of the tracks, killing five people.
The victims were apparently crushed as they slept before dawn. It was unclear if they were killed by rubble from a wall collapsed by the train car, by the car itself or by the large amount of corn that spilled out of the car. Mexico's Transportation Department said the derailment was under investigation and the train was operated under a private rail concession with Kansas City Southern de Mexico.
