Car, 2 bodies, found after railroad-bridge collapse
CHICAGO (MCT) – Seventeen hours after salvage crews started to dig through thousands of tons of spilled coal, derailed freight hoppers and twisted ruins from a collapsed railroad bridge in the northern Chicago suburbs, authorities on Thursday found a car buried in the wreckage with two bodies inside.
Officials at first said no one was injured when the 138-car Union Pacific Railroad coal train bound for Wisconsin derailed on a viaduct on the border of Glenview and Northbrook. Thursday morning, crews spotted the bumper of a car and dug around it with shovels.
Workers could be seen clearing off what appeared to be the windshield of a vehicle, then covering the area with a blue tarp. Officials on the scene said one body was inside, and they were working to remove it.
