The driver has been booked under IPC 336
He was admitted to Thrissur Medical College Hospital on Saturday where he later died. A case was registered under IPC 336 (endangering the life or personal safety of others) against the ambulance driver. Police said the deceased was yet to be identified. Malayalam Television channels aired visuals of the man lying on an inclined stretcher in front of the hospital with his head down.
