Six killed in Danish bridge train accident

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Six people were killed in a train accident Wednesday on a Danish bridge linking the central islands of Zealand and Funen.

Authorities said several others were injured in the accident, which took place at about 8 am local time.

Danish Railways told Denmark’s TV2 that the train from the city of Odense, on the central Danish island of Fyn, was heading toward the capital Copenhagen.

Danish media reported that a tarpaulin on a freight train hit the passenger train, which was going in the opposite direction, prompting it to brake suddenly. Denmark’s TV2 showed images of a freight train with the tarpaulin that covered the train torn in pieces.
