At least two construction workers died on Wednesday when a motorway overpass in the German state of Bavaria collapsed, Regional Interior Minister, Joachim Herrmann said.

A spokesman for the emergency services also said that three individuals were dead and twelve were injured after a 40-metre section of a new bridge under construction collapsed together with those working on it.

"We cannot rule out that there may be more people trapped under the rubble," a police spokesman said.

It was unclear if any car had been travelling along the country road which passed underneath the bridge at the time of the collapse.

Some 20 labourers were working on the German autobahn overpass, which fell with scaffolding from a height of around 20 metres.

The new bridge was intended to replace an older motorway bridge, which was deemed unstable and scheduled to be torn down.
