COPENHAGEN, Denmark — A Danish passenger train apparently hit falling cargo from a passing freight train Wednesday, an accident that killed six people and injured 16 others as it crossed a bridge linking the country’s islands, authorities said.

The accident was the worst in Denmark in more than 30 years.

The rail operator, Danish Railways, told Denmark’s TV2 that the victims were passengers on a train going from the city of Odense, on the central Danish island of Funen, to the capital of Copenhagen when the accident took place about 8 a.m.
