Woman in custody following stolen ambulance pursuit

By Kristina Bravo, Anthony Kurzweil and Jennifer Gould

    LOS ANGELES (KTLA)/CNN) -- Authorities took a woman into custody following a stolen ambulance pursuit that started at a downtown Los Angeles hospital and ended in Chino Hills early Tuesday.

A paramedic crew was transferring care of a seriously ill patient to the staff inside California Hospital Medical Center in downtown Los Angeles around 12:31 a.m. when the unoccupied ambulance was taken from the parking lot adjacent to the emergency room, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

The Fire Department said Los Angeles police immediately located the ambulance, which traveled to the freeway toward the San Gabriel Valley around 1 a.m. The California Highway Patrol then took over the pursuit.

The driver led the officers on a slow-speed chase and did not activate the ambulance's emergency lights and siren.

The pursuit came to an end at about 1:15 a.m. in Chino Hills, where video showed authorities taking a woman into custody.

The woman's identity has not been released.

No personnel or patients were harmed, the Fire Department said.

Sky5 started following the ambulance, as seen shortly after the two-hour mark in the video below, after covering another stolen vehicle pursuit that began in South L.A.

Further details were not immediately available.
