PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Police say a Boston man stole an ambulance from outside a Rhode Island hospital and took it on a 40-mile joyride before being stopped in Connecticut.
Police say Providence Rescue 6 was taken from Rhode Island Hospital at about 6 a.m. Monday. It had just dropped off a patient.
The suspect was pulled over on Interstate 95 in North Stonington, Connecticut.
Connecticut police charged 36-year-old Johnny Kimbrough with motor vehicle larceny. He was taken to a hospital and could not be reached for comment. He was given a June 4 court date.
Providence Public Safety Commissioner Steven Pare at first told WPRO-AM it appeared a patient stole the ambulance, but police later backed off that. The hospital says security video shows someone walking off the street to take it.
