Lawsuit Filed in Fatal Ambulance Crash

WOODBRIDGE, Md. -- The family of a Virginia man killed last year when his motorcycle hit an ambulance is suing the county for $4.4 million.

No charges were filed in connection with the Sept. 14, 2007, wreck in Maryland City that claimed the life of Gene Sergent, 21, of Woodbridge. County police say Mr. Sergent caused the wreck; that he ran a red light about 11 a.m. as he drove east on Route 198 in front of the Maryland City Plaza shopping center.

But in their lawsuit Frieda L. Sergent and John A. Turkette, Mr. Sergent's parents, say Firefighter Darrel E. Blount was to blame for the wreck. Michael McGowan, their attorney, said they have two witnesses who say Firefighter Blount ran the red light while his emergency lights were off.
