Perhaps the only thing worse than needing an ambulance is being inside of one when a car thief steals it.
And that’s exactly what Pennsylvania police had to deal with Friday when Brian Timothy Kada Jr., 25, of Florida used a gun to carjack an ambulance stuck in traffic.
Kada kicked the two EMTs out of the van but apparently didn’t check to see if anyone else was in it before taking off:
The alleged carjacker led the police on a momentary chase before the ambulance broke down and he tried unsuccessfully to flee on foot.
The patient inside was unharmed and transported in a different ambulance to Roxborough Memorial Hospital, ABC News reports.
Meanwhile Kada is facing charges for kidnapping, assault, and other related offenses, the report adds.
