It was a crazy car chase as police pursued a hijacked ambulance with a patient still inside. The alleged hijacker even called authorities from the ambulance to speak to a supervisor. Police say the hijacker fired shots at passing cars before officers brought the chase to an end at a gas station where they took the suspect into custody. Police praised the crew of the ambulance for how they handled the situation.
