Two ambulances collided on the GNT Road in Madhavaram on Friday afternoon. However, none was injured, though the vehicles were partly damaged. Police said the EMRI ambulance driven by Rukamangadan was taking a pregnant woman to the hospital.
The other ambulance driven by Venugopal was taking 75-year-old Chockalingam of Mannurpet, back home from the Stanley Hospital after doctors told his family that there was no hope of his survival. Police said the man breathed his last as soon as the ambulance left the hospital. Traffic police said they had registered a case. “One of the ambulance drivers was on the wrong side. The relatives of the old man did not lodge any complaint,” a police official said.
