A MOTHER seriously hurt in a motorway accident was yesterday still unaware that her husband and two children were killed in the crash. The news was being withheld from Mrs Gillian McKernon, 34, of Dundee, until she was fit enough.

Police have appealed for witnesses to the accident, on a contraflow section of the M74 Glasgow-Carlisle motorway near Larkhall, Strathclyde, in which Mrs McKernon's husband James, 35, an offshore worker, and children Jennifer, four, and one-year-old Lyndsay died. Ian Campbell, 48, from Crossford, Fife, who was driving another car, was also killed.
