Reckless Medic Stops Suspect, Charged With Reckless Driving

Comments (0)

A Petersburg, Virginia ambulance driver was declared something of an anti-hero 2 months ago when he drove his ambulance into the path of a speeding police chase.

The ambulance driver, Lt. Mark Talbott of the Southside Virginia Emergency Crew, intentionally pulled his ambulance in front of a speeding sedan in order to stop the car which had led police on a 10-minute chase. After colliding with the bumper of the ambulance, the suspect fled the scene on foot and was chased down by the police.

While the suspect was hit with 10 criminal charges, including reckless driving, hit and run, stolen property, and driving on a suspended license, the ambulance driver was also charged with a count of reckless driving. Despite the charges, Talbott said that he did not regret putting himself in harm's way. He insisted he was dong his job to protect the citizens of Virginia.

If Talbott is convicted of reckless driving in Virginia, he could lose his job as a medic. Many EMS agencies will not employ individuals convicted of reckless driving. Talbott hopes to keep his job and he plans to fight the reckless driving charges when his case is taken to court.
