FOUR people, including two teenage girls, are still being treated in hospital following the Glasgow bin lorry crash, which claimed the lives of six people.

Three females - a 14-year old girl, an 18-year-old and a woman aged 64 - are all being cared for at Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

The 14-year-old girl had been left seriously ill after the accident on Monday, in which an out-of-control bin lorry ploughed into pedestrians in the city centre, but all three of the women are now said to be in a stable condition.

The remaining patient, a 57-year-old man who is being treated in the Western Infirmary, is also stable.

A statement released by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde this morning said: “Four patients remain in two Glasgow hospitals following Monday’s tragic incident in George Square.

“Three patients remain in Glasgow Royal Infirmary: a 14-year-old girl, an 18-year-old female and a 64-year-old woman. All are stable.

“A 57-year-old man is being treated at the Western Infirmary and remains stable.”

The victims of the crash were yesterday remembered at Christmas services across the city, with candles lit and prayers said for all those affected by the tragedy.

Jacqueline McQuade is thought to have gone to withdraw money from a cash machine during a Christmas shopping trip when her 18-year-old daughter Erin McQuade and parents Jack and Lorraine Sweeney, all from Dumbarton, were fatally injured.

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