Did he bleed to death?
Did he die of an existing condition?
Is there a clue in the fact they arrived at hospital in record time?
Yes, but only to show there was enough time to get to the hospital for treatment.
• Did he die of an existing condition?
No, he had no unusual medical problem (such as hemophilia)
• Did he bleed to death?
Yes. They either did not stop the bleeding (highly improbable, but an acceptable answer) or...
the patch didn't hold (or tourniquet came loose) during transport.
He had already lost blood but not enough to kill him. It was the loss of blood during transport that did him in.
This could have been due to a sloppy patch up jop, or to due faulty medical supplies, but whoever was riding in the back with the injured man should have noticed he was still bleeding, or had started bleeding again.
