A terrible tragedy, 3 members of one family were killed
Our thought's are with the the families with lost loved ones

According to the TV tonight the lorry ran up the left hand side of the pavement from the Goma, its a miracle that there were not more fatalities and injuries

A Terrible tragedy especially at this time of the year, I know its no consolation to those who lost loved ones and I know someone personally who did, but it could have been much much worse if it had veered right and ran through the square.
Heartfelt condolences to all the families and folk involved.

However, still no answer as to the cause of the fatal accident. Was the driver drunk,had a heart attack or what it should not take this long for an answer?

Drunk... dunno where you got that one from.

The driver is believed to have suffered a heart attack at the wheel.

He is seriously ill in hospital.

Five others are also still being treated in hospital.

I'm with you Dave, I think a retraction is due from Targer on this one.
Bob.

No retraction required it had to be one or the other reason and there was no answer from the media/press. It was Just a question not a statement of fact.

It had to be "one or the other", i.e. Drunk or heart attack.
Did you not consider a malfunction with the vehicle.
No - drunk or heart attack.
You are sad.

From the morning of the 23rd that statement was used almost all day. It may not have been a heart attack it could well have been an allergic reaction, Hypo from diabetes or a brain haemorrhage but I think it would be safe to say if it were drink related then that would have been the festive headline, after all first thing they do if your admitted to hospital after an RTA is "Take Blood" I am sure with the fact it was known to involve fatalities so early on this would have been a top priority if the driver was unresponsive.

It is also wrong to speculate while there is still an ongoing investigation into the accident.
