GLENVIEW, Ill. (AP) – Hundreds of people have attended funeral

services for a Glenview couple killed in a freight train derailment
north of Chicago. The derailment earlier in the week threw dozens of rail cars hauling coal off the tracks. Nearly all piled up on a rail bridge, causing it to collapse over a road between the suburbs of Glenview and Northbrook. The debris crushed the car that 69-year-old lawyer Burton Lindner and 70-year-old Zorine Lindner were traveling in. About 700 people came to a Deerfield synagogue on Sunday for the funeral service. The couple had been married for nearly 50 years and were remembered as frequent travelers who liked to volunteer. At first, authorities had said no one was injured. But workers
clearing away debris discovered the crushed car a day later.
