(CNN) -- A bus plunged off a bridge outside Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday, killing at least six people, state-run Agencia Brasil reported.

It was unclear how many people were aboard the bus, which was packed with commuters heading home from work. The driver apparently lost control, and the bus crashed down onto train tracks below an overpass, the news agency said.

The number of injured could reach up to 30 people, Agencia Brasil said.
