Caught On Camera: Video Shows Man Crashing Stolen Ambulance Into Several Vehicles In East Charlotte
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Police say a man is in custody for stealing an ambulance and then crashing it into several vehicles in east Charlotte.
Officers with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department say they responded to Executive Center Drive near Albemarle Road around 11:20am on Monday in reference to a disturbance call.
While on the scene, a MEDIC truck was stolen, according to CMPD. As you can see in the video below, the suspect slammed the ambulance into several parked vehicles.
Just seconds before the suspect took control of the vehicle, MEDIC says a two person crew had loaded a patient into the back of the truck and were preparing to treat. The crew quickly got out with the patient however, before the man could take off.
After crashing into several vehicles, the suspect jumped out of the truck and was quickly taken into custody by responding officers.
No one was injured as a result of the incident.
CMPD says the suspect has been taken to a local hospital for evaluation. His name will be released once formal charges have been filed.
