The accident took place around 10.58 am when the Sealdah-bound minibus dashed against the road divider and lost control while overtaking another bus when it was descending from the bridge, a senior officer of Kolkata Traffic Police said.
Two children were among the injured and were rushed to a hospital. The police were yet to establish the identities of the victims.
The accident led to a huge traffic jam on the bridge.
