Posted by wlpo on May 28, 2012

CHICAGO (AP) – Chicago police allege a 30-year-old woman stole a fire department ambulance from a hospital on the city’s South Side and crashed it several blocks away.

Cassie Weathersby was charged with stealing the vehicle, driving on a suspended license and driving under the influence of alcohol.

Chicago police spokesman Ron Gaines says the woman fled across an expressway in the ambulance before crashing into a vehicle around 11 p.m. Sunday.

Weathersby was not injured in the crash and was taken into custody.

She was scheduled to appear in bond court Monday. It was immediately unclear if Weathersby had an attorney.

A message left Sunday at a number listed for Weathersby wasn’t immediately returned.
