VIDEO: Man arrested after stealing Ambulance to escape DUI crash


Attempting a brazen getaway after a car crash via an ambulance, a pair of horses and a stolen SUV when you’re drunk may not be the best idea. At least it wasn’t for an Alabama man who attempted to do exactly that over the weekend, according to police.

The series of transportation failures began last Friday, when 24-year-old Matthew Todd of Boaz, Ala., got into a car accident, reported NBC affiliate WAFF-TV in Alabama. Investigators told WAFF that Todd was intoxicated at the time of the crash, which happened in Sardis City, a few miles from Boaz, in the northeastern part of the state.

It’s unclear whether there were other drivers involved and what kind of injuries Todd suffered from the crash. He was taken by ambulance to the nearest emergency room at Marshall Medical Center South in Boaz and admitted as a patient, but Todd had no interest in sticking around: Authorities said shortly after he got there, he persuaded hospital staff to let him go outside for a smoke break.

Once outside, instead of grabbing a cigarette, Todd hopped into an ambulance that was running, according to WAFF. Click below for full story -
