He then drove toward Essen, where he twice attempted to run people down, injuring one person, before being arrested by police. Police said the driver had earlier tried to mow down one pedestrian, who managed to get out of the way.

The passenger train was heading towards capital Copenhagen - having departed from the city of Odense - when the accident happened around 8am local time on Wednesday.

A severe storm was making it hard for emergency services to reach the train.

TV footage showed the halted freight train carrying packaging for Danish beer maker Carlsberg.

An emergency centre has been set up at the western end of the bridge in the town of Nyborg.

Police declined to comment on a report from Denmark's TV2 channel that a container had likely fallen off the cargo train.

The 18-kilometre long bridge across the Great Belt carries around 21,000 train passengers every day and more than 27,000 vehicles crosses the bridge each day.
