No Injuries Reported In Incident

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Authorities said a patient being taken by ambulance to the hospital hijacked the vehicle and led police on a chase before crashing.

Police said the incident began at about 9:30 p.m. on Sunday when West Springfield emergency medical technicians were taking the man to Mercy Medical Center.

But the 49-year-old patient allegedly began beating the EMTs, who jumped out of the vehicle.
Springfield Police Lt. Robert Strzempek said the patient then drove through the Peter Pan bus terminal hitting a bus and a parked car. The chase ended when the patient collided head-on with a car on Main Street. There were no serious injuries.

The patient, whose name was not immediately released, faces a variety of charges including motor vehicle assault and assault and battery.
