PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The driver of a stolen ambulance has been nabbed after leading police on a chase through Philadelphia that lasted more than an hour.
A police spokesman says the man tried to run over an officer who shot him three times before the chase began.
The officer was struck and hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say the man stole the emergency vehicle as authorities responded to reports of a domestic disturbance requiring medical attention at a motel.
His name wasn’t immediately released as he has yet to be charged with a crime. He was taken to a hospital.
