Officers from the Maryland State Police and Carroll County Sheriff’s Office gave chase Thursday afternoon to a Baltimore County ambulance reportedly stolen from the emergency department at Carroll Hospital, ultimately crashing with the vehicle in Finksburg. Police then apprehended the driver.

No injuries were reported as a result of the crash. Police are investigating the incident.

After being taken from the hospital, the ambulance was located by police on Route 32 in the area of Knox Court. It continued south on Route 32 before crashing at about 12:14 p.m., at the intersection of Niner Road and Route 32, according to Jon Light, public information officer for the sheriff’s office.

“The ambulance ended up striking a Maryland State Police vehicle and then also struck a Carroll Sheriff’s Office vehicle which was pushed into a third parked car,” Light said.

The ambulance eventually stopped near Gamber & Community Fire Company. Clay Myers, a spokesman for the company, called the crash a “crazy” situation.

“The police were chasing it and they disabled it in front of our firehouse,” Myers said.

The driver of the stolen ambulance was taken to Carroll Hospital to be evaluated, Light said.

Charges are pending, police said in a news release. Information about the driver and a list of charges will be released later, police said.

This story will be updated as new information becomes available.
