Services were scheduled Tuesday night for the three people who died when their passenger car crashed with a village of Skokie garbage truck and burst into flames last week.
The medical examiner's office has identified them as Gwi Rye Kim, a 65-year-old woman; Jung Ran Min, a 51-year-old woman; and Won Suk Lim, a 56-year-old man, according to a spokesperson. Kim lived in the 2600 block of West Berwyn Avenue in Chicago, but the medical examiner's office could not provide an address for Min or Lim on Tuesday afternoon.
Services were scheduled for 8 p.m. Tuesday at Colonial Funeral Home, 8025 West Golf Rd. in Niles, according to an employee of the funeral home. She said Min and Lim were husband and wife and both lived in Chicago.
At least two of the three people who died in the fiery wreck worked at San Soo Gab San Korean BBQ, 5247 N. Western Ave. in Chicago. The restaurant posted a message on its Facebook page last Wednesday about the car crash.
“Please give your prayers to our two employees who passed away yesterday in the horrific garbage truck accident in Glenview,” the restaurant wrote. “Pray for them and their families.”
An employee told Patch that the son and daughter of the people who died were on their way to the United States from Korea.
Glenview Police were not immediately available for comment Tuesday morning.
