WACHAPREAGUE, Va. (AP/WBOC)- Virginia State Police say an ambulance driver has been charged with failing to obey a traffic signal in an accident in Accomack County that killed a man being transported.

State Police spokeswoman Sgt. Michelle Anaya said 38-year-old Peter Surran, of Exmore, was charged Tuesday.

The crash happened at around 4 p.m. Monday on southbound Route 13 in Wachapreague. Anaya said Surran was driving a Bloxom volunteer fire ambulance through an intersection with its lights and sirens activated when it hit a Star transit bus. The ambulance lost control and overturned several times.

A man being transported by the ambulance, 60-year-old Douglas R. McCready, of Parksley, died at the scene.

Surran and two other squad members suffered injuries that were not life-threatening. The bus driver was not injured and no one else was on the bus.
