Just after a patient was dropped off by ambulance at Floyd Memorial Hospital, in New Albany, IN, the ambulance was stolen.

It’s the second time an ambulance has been stolen in southern Indiana in less than a month. Previously, someone stole an ambulance as EMTs visited a fast-food restaurant. This time, on April 16, a patient was dropped off at the hospital around 1 a.m. and leaving patient Jeremy Wooten took the ambulance, reports WLKY.com of Louisville, KY. Wooten drove the ambulance a few blocks before jumping out and being detained. Police reported he was intoxicated. http://www.wlky.com/r/27588007/detail.html
