At the early hours of Wednesday, six people have been reportedly killed in a train accident on a bridge linking two of Denmark main islands.

According to reports from authority responsible for the maintenance and traffic control of the railway network, the passenger train was heading towards the capital when it was hit by objects or tarpaulin from a freight train. A severe storm made it difficult for emergency services to reach the train which had stopped on the Great Belt fixed link between Zealand and Funen, Denmark’s two major islands.

Police told a press conference it could not confirm the death toll or disclose how many people were injured.

An emergency center was established in the town of Nyborg at the western end of the bridge. Fatal accidents are rare in the country’s highly developed rail network.

The bridge was closed for both trains and vehicles towards the island of Funen, while car traffic towards Zealand had opened again.
