    I may be wrong; but I have seen personally of most people being gotten insensitive to ambulance sirens that they would not move their vehicle a few feet to give way to the anxious ambulance driver carrying a patient who's life's running out of time!!

    Actuelly to say the truth ,I feel tiles were too heavy to carry in a rickshaw.Should have been taken in a different vehicle.Most important we see here,due to accident more people were on road to take a foto than to clear the road or help the injured.More chaos .When more weight rickshaw cant move to make place for ambulance.However hope the injured are now out of danger .

    Ambulance drivers should drive carefully, ambulances are meant to save lives....and limbs.
