Couple ID’d as train derailment victims
GLENVIEW – A Chicago law firm Friday identified a lawyer and his wife as the victims of a suburban freight train derailment that took out a railroad bridge and sent hundreds of tons of coal and rail cars crashing down onto the road below.
Burton and Zorine Lindner of Glenview were driving under the railroad bridge Wednesday when the train derailed. Thirty-one of the rail cars piled up on the bridge, causing it to collapse over a road between the suburbs of Glenview and Northbrook. A huge mound of twisted train cars and coal filled the gap where the bridge had been.
Officials initially said that no one was injured, but workers clearing debris discovered a bumper Thursday morning and later uncovered the crushed car with the victims inside.
