Bin lorry crash victim released from hospital

Posted in: Public Place Accidents Road Traffic Accidents Wrongful & Accidental Death 

Following the tragic accident that saw six killed on 22 December in Glasgow, one of the victims has been released from hospital. The 18-year-old was released today following the bin lorry crash that happened in George Square just before Christmas. The teenager had been receiving treatment in a Glasgow hospital.

NHS Greater Glasgow Clyde said that three people are still receiving hospital treatment following the tragic accident. These include the 57-year-old driver of the bin lorry who is being treated at the Western Infirmary and is believed to be in a stable condition. A 14-year-old girl and a 64-year-old woman are still receiving treatment at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

Two-minute silence

Six people were killed in the accident outside the Millennium hotel next to Queen Street Station. These include student Erin McQuade (18) and her grandparents Jack (68) and Lorraine Sweeney (69), all from Dumbarton. The other victims were Stephanie Tait (29), a primary school teacher from Glasgow, Gillian Ewing (52) from Edinburgh, and Jacqueline Morton (51) from Glasgow.

On Sunday over 1,000 people took part in a two-minute silence for the victims and their families in Glasgow’s Royal Exchange Square. David McCallum arranged the vigil after setting up a Facebook support page for those affected by the accident. He said he was almost instantly contacted by thousands of people.

Since the accident people have been leaving candles and floral tributes where the crash happened.
