This wreck brings to light the dangers with emergency vehicles. The article does not state whether the ambulance had its lights or sirens activated. However, there is also an inherent responsibility when driving an emergency vehicle. This is especially, true when approaching intersections. Drivers that do not have an immediate view of the emergency vehicle may not be aware that it is approaching. 
The family of the deceased may want to speak to a Virginia wrongful death lawyer to discuss their options for filing a wrongful death claim. They might also want to read this free guide prepared by an experienced wrongful death attorney.
