      If accident occurs while you travel with some people or to other people on road, you can help the people to keep alive till ambulance arrives,

Be safe, your safety is more important than the people who are injured, so check for dangers around you, signal to the vehicles on the road to stop them, get help from bystanders and lift the patient to the safest place from the road and resuscitate

Check for how many people got injured, to inform to the ambulance service you need to know this, also confirm where you are accurately to inform the exact place to ambulance to arrive,
Call ambulance Tell this step wise to them

Call ambulance  It is important to have medical support when the people get injured, so call ambulance immediately (108 in India)

If many people are injured, check who are bleeding much and unconscious , because people who are awake they are actually out of risk to life, concentrate more on the people who are unconscious

There is more bleeding, there is more chance to die, so stop bleeding by giving pressure on the site, if bleeding is on anterior part make then lie down in a supine position

Then check for pulse by checking it on carotid artery on neck( between trachea and sternocleidomastoid muscle), if you are novice keep your ear on the center portion of the chest of the patient and hear heart beat for 10 seconds, if there is no sound or there is no pulse start compression on mid chest to circulate the blood to brain and all over the body, continue it till ambulance arrives
