NORTHBROOK, Ill. -- A Union Pacific spokesman says a freight train has derailed and a bridge over a stretch of road has collapsed in the northern Chicago suburbs.

Mark Davis says 31 cars of a 138-car freight train derailed about 1:45 p.m. Wednesday. He says the three-engine train was carrying coal from an eastern Wyoming mine to a utility in Wisconsin. Davis says the bridge was 86 feet long.

After crews began to sift through the wreckage Thursday, they discovered a car with at least one body inside under the rubble, CBS Chicago reports.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the car was found around 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

A second body was found inside the car later Thursday afternoon, the Chicago Tribune reports.

The people inside the car were identified Friday as Burton Lindner, 69 and his wife Zorine Lindner, 70, NBC Chicago reports.

Cleanup work has been called off while police investigate the scene.

Glenview police responded to the scene near the borders of Glenview and Northbrook but did not immediately provide any information Wednesday. Officials originally said no one was injured in the incident.

Davis says the incident happened on a rail line not used by Chicago commuter services.

Union Pacific is investigating the cause of the derailment. Davis said Tuesday it will take two days to reopen the rail line.
