The 44-year-old worker died on the scene of his injuries after a steel construction on a bridge for ICE trains collapsed, police in the German state of Thuringia said.
A fire engine racing to the scene of the bridge accident collided with a man in a wheel chair. The severely disabled man died a while later in a nearby hospital.
The two-track railway bridge is a part of a new, faster route between Munich and Berlin.
