Kaufman hospital patient accused of stealing ambulance

A female patient from Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Kaufman was taken into police custody Tuesday after stealing an ambulance, according to Kaufman police.

The patient, who was wearing only her hospital gown, reportedly hit a car with the CareFlite ambulance before leading
officers on a high-speed chase.

Police and sheriff's deputies finally stopped the ambulance with spike strips about 20 miles south, near the Kaufman County town of Kemp.

The woman was not hurt.

Police are not saying why she was a patient at the hospital in the first place, but they are evaluating her mental state.
