LOUISA, VA (WWBT) - Virginia State Police are investigating a two-vehicle crash involving an ambulance responding to the scene of another crash on I-64.

The ambulance was responding to a reported single-vehicle crash at mile marker 135 in Louisa County. They found a vehicle disabled on the left shoulder.

The ambulance was in the right lane and attempted to shift into the left lane - that's when, police say, a 2013 Honda CR-V struck the back of the ambulance, pushing it into the driver of the disabled vehicle, 23-year-old Herbert Tyler III.

Tyler suffered serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. The driver of the Honda CR-V, 51-year-old Gerald Wolburg, suffered minor injuries. Both were taken to the hospital for treatment.

Police have charged Wolburg with following too close. The crash remains under investigation.
