Ambulance emergency generic

Authorities say a man stole an ambulance and crashed it in Detroit Sunday.

Police say someone went into a fire station and drove the EMS vehicle through the door and onto I-75, before taking the exit for eight mile road.

Police were able to track it because it has a tracking device built in.

The driver lost control, the ambulance rolled over and hit another vehicle.

The 31-year-old suspect was taken into custody with minor injuries and is expected to be ok.

Police said the ambulance was an advanced model with high-end life-support equipment.

Its estimated value is about $250,000 and it was heavily damaged.
