Charge against ambulance driver dropped

PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) - A reckless driving charge against a Petersburg ambulance driver has been dropped.

The commonwealth's attorney's office says it went to a judge today and requested the matter be dismissed.

Earlier this month Mark Talbott saw a police pursuit and positioned his ambulance vehicle to block the suspect's car. The suspect rear ended Talbott -- who was later charged with reckless driving.

The commonwealth's attorney's office says Talbott's intentions were good and charging him was a mistake.
