Sacramento police have arrested a man suspected of stealing an ambulance from a hospital where he was being treated as a patient.

After authorities realized the ambulance was missing, an officer with McGeorge Law School spotted the ambulance and began following it to the area of 5th Avenue and Broadway, police said.

Additional officers, trying to help stop the ambulance, but soon a lengthy chase gave way to the vehicle crashing on Highway 99 just south of Elverta Road.

After the crash, police recovered the suspect, later identified as Kenneth Javier, 22, and arrested him.

Ironically, Javier would then be taken to a nearby hospital where he’d be treated for minor injuries connected with the crash.
