Police: Man Arrested After Stealing Ambulance From A Pennsylvania Hospital

Ambulance

CONNELLSVILLE, Pa. (AP) — A 43-year-old man has been charged with car theft, drunken driving and other crimes because police say he went joyriding in an ambulance stolen from a southwestern Pennsylvania hospital.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Michael David Wilson Sr., of Republic, who was arraigned early Monday following his arrest shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday.

Connellsville police say a global positioning device in the ambulance helped them track the vehicle’s location and arrest Wilson.

Wilson remained in the Fayette County Prison Monday after he was unable to post bond. He faces a preliminary hearing March 24.

Police say Wilson crashed the vehicle after driving it away from Highlands Hospital, and that he damaged its front bumper, side mirror and part of the vehicle’s boxed shell.
