FOUR PEOPLE are still being treated in hospital a week after the bin lorry crash in Glasgow in which six people died.

Three females - a 14-year-old girl, an 18-year-old and a woman aged 64 - are all being cared for at the city’s Royal Infirmary and are said to be in a stable condition.

A 57-year-old man understood to be the driver also remains stable at the Western Infirmary.

The victims of the crash were remembered when about 1,000 people held a vigil near the scene yesterday.

Many of those in the crowd held lit candles as they reflected on the six people who were killed and the 10 injured when the lorry lost control in Queen Street and George Square.

The vigil took place in Glasgow’s Royal Exchange Square, adjoining Queen Street, where hundreds of bouquets of flowers and candles have been placed.

Erin McQuade, 18, and her grandparents 68-year-old Jack and 69-year-old Lorraine Sweeney, all from Dumbarton, died in the accident. Their funerals are expected to be held later this week.

Primary school teacher Stephenie Tait, 29, and tax worker Jacqueline Morton, 51, both from Glasgow, and Gillian Ewing, 52, from Edinburgh, were also killed when the council truck mounted the pavement before crashing into the side of the Millennium Hotel in George Square.

A statement from NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde said today: “Four patients remain in two hospitals in Glasgow following last Monday’s tragic incident in George Square.

“Three patients remain in Glasgow Royal Infirmary. One is a 14-year-old girl, one is an 18-year-old female and one is a 64-year-old female, all of whom remain stable.

“A 57-year-old man is being treated at the Western Infirmary and is also in a stable condition.”
