The driver had a seizure. It is not known whether this was a recurring illness or whether it was induced by other means.

Please spare a thought for this man also.

Just came across this photo...



Eyewitnesses say the driver was slumped over the wheel yet this pic seems to show him sitting upright just before it hits the hotel.

It's unbelievable what can be done to photographs these days.

I'm not trying to court controversy, simply asking for your opinion on the picture.

From a still its difficult. But lets assume the driver has already hit the taxi. he would have been thrown forward then like gun recoil the natural motion is to move in the opposite direction therefore would appear to be sitting up normally.

Simple physics with a high price from start to finish.

What a curious point of focus for a CCTV camera... it's focused on the entrance to the George Square christmas event but not pointing at it, so pretty much useless.

Still, it was a tragic accident and we'll just have to wait for the report to be made public.

I think i would be asking how the evening times got hold of council cctv footage from their ultra secure new building where they swore this sort of thing never happens.
