Could hear all the sirens from the office. Hearing at least 6 dead, double figures injured. Terrible news.
As SDD says, it's always busy with cars and pedestrians at that junction.
Wonder what happened to make the bin lorry go out of control. Driver heart attack maybe?
had calls from my dad and sister to say they're ok. my mum's out shopping and i had to get a hold of her too. so horrific.
Not good at any time of the year never mind Christmas.
Only a year after Clutha too.
My dad's office is on that block, but I've managed to speak to him and he and all the staff are ok. It's making me feel so sick, just thinking about it.
so many people are going to have lost loved ones :(
there were children involved too
fuck. this is awful.
I keep having to go to the loos because I think I might cry. I'm glad your immediate family are all ok! I really really need to draft a document but all I really want to do is go home and hug a lot. xxx
all the way from goma to the hotel.
Heard the driver had a heart attack?
my first thought was what if he's survived and been at fault or over the limit. but i cant see how he would have gone all the way up queen street through a red light unless he'd taken a fit or a heart attack. it must have been so traumatic for the witnesses.
fuck, imagine waking up in the hospital and learning you'd crashed into a load of folk.
really hope everyone on dis' friends and family are safe.
my dad phoned to check on me earlier and he seriously knows about half of glasgow, think he's feeling proper dread right now
Grim. So cruel.
