Man, 60, injured in minibus crash
A 60-year-old man is in hospital after the minibus he was travelling in crashed into trees on a key commuter route.
The bus carrying 10 passengers left the eastbound M8 connecting Glasgow and Edinburgh at about 6.50am on Monday.
The injured man was airlifted to the Southern General hospital in Glasgow, where he is in a stable condition, Strathclyde Police said.
Four passengers were taken to Wishaw General and three to Monklands hospital. They were later released following treatment.
The collision just after the Shotts turn-off forced the temporary closure of the motorway in both directions.
