High-Speed Police Chase for Stolen Ambulance

CENTREVILLE, Md.- An ambulance was left dented and scratched following a joy ride across two states. It all started at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital in Seaford, Del.

Maryland State Police Juan Marquis Williams stole the ambulance on Tuesday and then drove it into Queen Anne's County, Md., where a high-speed police chase ensued. Troopers said that is when things got tense.

"[He takes] a U-turn and heads back down Route 50 eastbound. The pursuit continues and the vehicle then travels over the grassy median and into oncoming traffic," said MSP 1st Sgt. Robert Connolly.

Police said the ambulance that was stolen from Nanticoke Memorial ended up crashing into a parked car and a curb, leaving some people in Seaford surprised.

"For somebody to do that, you know you may need that ambulance to come pick you up and if they wreck it or do something with it, it's a lot of money to fix it if it's damaged," said Brenda Layton. "There are a lot of people in the world who need that and these towns are small."

"It's very dangerous and putting other people's lives at danger for sure," said Karl Berkey.

Police said Williams crashed the ambulance along Route 50 near Route 404 in Queen Anne's County, leaving it inoperable.

"It ended in a pretty good result because the vehicle became disabled, no innocent citizens were injured, the suspect wasn't injured and no police were injured but that's a dangerous situation," Connolly said.

Williams was quickly taken into custody. He now faces a slew of charges for his alleged two-state joy ride in the ambulance.
