|Tributes have poured in for the victims of Monday’s truck accident in Glasgow. Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon laid flowers at the scene as hundreds express condolences on social media. Police confirmed Tuesday that five females and one male were killed in the accident; three were related. Ten others were injured in the incident, six of whom are still in the hospital and one of whom is in critical condition after a rubbish truck careened up Queen Street in the city centre at about 2:30 p.m. on Monday before crashing in George Square. It flattened street signs and struck several pedestrians before hitting the Millenium Hotel near the entrance to Queen Street station. Glasgow City Council, which operates the rubbish trucks, confirmed that three employees were in the lorry before the crash. Eyewitnesses on the scene said that the driver had been slumped over the wheel, leading some to believe he had suffered a heart attack.
