"[S]he 'took the vehicle because she missed the last bus'"

Cops say that Lisa Carr, 43, was released from Deaconess Hospital in Cincinnati around 11 PM Thursday.

Following Carr’s discharge, an ambulance driver flagged down a cop car to report that his vehicle–which he left running outside the hospital while dropping off a patient–had been boosted.

Police officers were quickly able to track the ambulance via its GPS signal and began following the vehicle on what became a 20-minute trek to Carr’s residence 10 miles from the hospital. The ambulance never topped 30 mph, according to a police report.
