In a Facebook post, Karen, 45, said she wanted to thank the nurse who stayed with her son after the crash. 

Speaking to the Glasgow Times, 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.”Glasgow Times:

Karen described how her son – who was alone in the car at the time – clipped another car on the M8 westbound near junction five at Harthill and spun out of control. 

The woman – a nurse at the Glasgow Royal Infirmary – was described as being over 5 foot, with brown hair and driving a red Peugeot. Karen believes her name might have been Carrie and that she may have been from Shettleston. Glasgow Times:

Ryan is now safe and well but still shaken and sore from the accident on Wednesday, July 1 at around 6.50pm.
