Several killed in rail incident in Denmark”

At least six people have been killed in a train accident on a bridge in Denmark on January 2, train operator DSB said.

Other outlets described the object as a "tarpaulin".

The debris struck the commuter train - running from Odense to the capital Copenhagen - at about 07:35 local time (06:35 GMT). "We flew down onto the floor, and then the train stopped", passenger Heidi Langberg Zumbusch told DR. He added there was "considerable damage" on the passenger train.

The road and rail bridge is part of a transport system consisting of a road suspension bridge and a railway tunnel.

The transport system was closed to cars overnight because of strong winds but trains could pass. Road traffic resumed Wednesday with a 50 kph (31 mph) speed limit.

The rail section will be closed for the rest of the day, according to Banedanmark, a company that maintains much of the Danish railway network.

A preliminary investigation by the Danish Accident Investigation Board showed a trailer had blown off a freight wagon onto the oncoming tracks, a spokesman said.

A crisis center has been opened in the nearby city of Nyborg to care for passengers.

Six people have been killed after a train crashed on a bridge spanning over a 10-mile wide stretch of water.

Jesper Nielsen, who was on the passenger train, told Denmark's TV2 the train "was out on the bridge when there was a huge "bang". very quickly thereafter, the train braked".

The Storebaelt bridge is part of bridges and tunnel link between the Danish islands.
