Hunt for hero nurse who cared for teen after horror crash
THE mother of a boy involved in a horror car crash is looking for the hero nurse who cared for her son in the aftermath.
Karen Bryson’s son Ryan, 18 was treated for his injuries at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary following the incident.
In a Facebook post, Karen, 45, said she wanted to thank the nurse who stayed with her son after the crash.
The Blackhill mum said: “When I was in the moment I was really only thinking about my son, so I never got a chance to thank her.
“She saw what had happened and stayed with Ryan and sang him Disney songs until I came.
“We really just want to send her some flowers and a wee card to say thank you.”
Karen described how her son – who was alone in the car at the time – crashed on the M8 westbound near junction five at Harthill and spun out of control.
Police confirmed the driver of a Peugeot 3008 was charged in relation to a road traffic offence. The woman was described as being over 5ft, with brown hair and driving a red Peugeot.
Karen believes her name might have been Carrie and that she may have been from Shettleston
Ryan is now safe and well. A police spokeswoman said: “We received a report of a one-vehicle collision on the M8, near Harthill Services, around 7.05pm on Wednesday, July 1, 2020.”
