VIDEO: Man Steals Ambulance, Leads LAPD on Chase

A man being treated by paramedics stole a Los Angeles Fire Department ambulance and led police on a chase that ended in a traffic collision, sending two women to the hospital Sunday night.

Paramedics responded to a medical call in the 200 block of North San Pedro street in downtown L.A. about 6:30 p.m., and then the man drove off in the ambulance, according to the LAFD’s Katherine Main.

The paramedics were not in the ambulance at the time, Main told the Los Angeles Times.

Either lock the dam vehicle or take the keys with you and never leave a person alone with the keys in the vehicle. The guy was crazy and did not know what he was doing I blame the firefighters on this one.

Damn EMS/Paramedics & Hose Draggers. They come a roaring in with the sirens blaring & drive through ones scene(s) all the time. Then they'll get out with the their vehicle leaving it sitting there or occupied just like this. Can't say how many times they screwed up my crime/accident scene(s). Then they always wanted to leave the suspect un-secured so they could work on them. They're in the help & fix business. LOL
