Vaman Naika, a patient who was being taken to hospital through the ambulance, and his relatives, Lokayya and Subrahmanya, were injured. The injured are being treated in a hospital at Mangaluru. The ambulance driver however had a providential escape.

Patient Vaman Naika was being ferried for dialysis by Rotaract Charitable Trust ambulance from Mahaveera Hospital, Puttur to Mangaluru when a goods tempo on its way to Puttur collided with the ambulance at Parlottu.

While Parvati who was seriously injured died on the way to the hospital, Sesamma succumbed to her injuries in the hospital.

    Don't only blame the other van, neglegence might be from ambulance driver also, now a days ambulance drivers, even no emergency situation, switch on siren, move with 8 to 10 head lights, completely blinding opposite driver.....the arrogance of these ambulance drivers is so much as if any one questions they know they will get public sympathy... everyone gives way to ambulance, but in some circumstances in traffic its just impossible to give way as there is no way to give side.....buses and ambulances are now a days are uncontrollable by our Police...
