COPENHAGEN, Denmark (AP) — Danish police say several people have been killed in a train accident on a bridge linking the central islands of Zealand and Funen.

Police did not provide further details about those killed or the number of people injured in Wednesday's incident, which took place about 8 a.m. local time. Danish media reported that a tarpaulin on a freight train hit a passenger train going in the opposite direction, prompting it to brake suddenly.

The Storebaelt bridge is part of bridges and tunnel link between the Danish islands. Police is scheduled to give a news conference later Wednesday.
