Oops, Did not catch that. Sorry. I sure hope there was no patient at the back.

But looking at how fast police/sheriff cars arrive on the scene, I have a feeling the driver was not really legit.

Brings ambulance chasing to a new level, though.

It was a woman from Buffalo who stole it in Utica. 

It's amazing that she made it down the hill to the club.

Quote

A high-speed police pursuit ended Sunday with a stolen ambulance submerged in Irondequoit Bay and a Buffalo woman facing numerous criminal charges.

Vanessa Armstead, 32, is being held in the Monroe County Jail on a $3,500 bail for the charges levied against her related to the pursuit and crash into the water.  State police have charged her with second-degree criminal possession of stolen property and two counts of second-degree criminal mischief, all felonies.

Utica police said she is also facing felony charges there for third-degree burglary and second-degree grand larceny, both relating to the theft of the ambulance.

Utica Police were called to Kunkel Ambulance around 10:30 Sunday morning for a report that an ambulance had been stolen from an open garage bay. After learning the vehicle was equipped with a GPS tracking device, State Police were able to locate the stolen ambulance on the New York State Thruway a short time later.

Troopers attempted to stop the stolen ambulance, both on the Thruway and later after it had exited onto I-490 and driven into the city of Rochester. Each time, police say, the operator refused to comply and the pursuit was terminated.

The pursuit would come to an end shortly after the driver encountered a traffic circle on route 590 in the town of Irondequoit and veered down a narrow dead-end street.

Witnesses said the vehicle came down Seneca Road at a high rate of speed, crashed through a locked gate, and then sped down a boat ramp into the waters of Irondequoit Bay. Dozens of boaters and families who were enjoying the sunny day at Newport Yacht Club witnessed the incident, which came to an end around 12:30 p.m Sunday.

There's no way a person continues in a police chase for an hour without some kind of mental impairment.  Maybe it was pre-existing, maybe it was from the accident the prior day, maybe drugs...maybe a combination of all three. Pitiful, but I'm glad no bystanders were killed or injured.

This one came up Pacific Avenue, back in April.  I heard the sirens and the helicopters coming.  I opened the front door of my shop as the raced by.  I wondered why the Fire Department vehicle was leading the pack!  It wasn't until it came to an end that I found out that the Fire Department vehicle had been stolen and was being chased!

Well, at least, with an ambulance (or a fire truck, or a police car), you can turn on the sirene and the lights and get the traffic in front of you the fuck out of the way, hoping to escape the chasing cops.

I would not go all the way to calling that a smart move, though...

Thats a good point but its not always true.

Our son was a junior in high school.  A nationally ranked water skier, an honor student in his high school and a fellow who all his life dreamed of being a Military pilot.  We had him working on his private pilots license to get him a head start for aviation curriculum at LA Tech.  Two days before he was to solo, I had taken the day off (its was my best friends birthday and the fifth anniversary of the completion of our home so he and I were going to celebrate.) This may have saved his life.  

As he was getting ready to go to school, I heard him holler out, “What is wrong with my lift arm.”  I went to his room to find him in the midst of a grand mal seizure.  So much for flying.  (At least we all thought but found it was induced by a prescription of cypro.)  

There jsut happened to be a fisherman in his boat at the end of our boat dock.  I yelled out asking him if he could stand up at the road to direct the ambulance.  He graciously did so.  

I rode in the front seat of the ambulance to the hospital in Ruston.  

On the main road in Jonesboro, in the passing lane, an older gentleman would not pull over to let the ambulance pass.  We had to ride behind him for several minutes at speeds well below the posted speed limit.  The ambulance driver explained that it was strictly against the law for him to pass on the right regardless of the situation.  Lights and siren would not get him to move until he finally turned off onto a side road apparently going to his destination.  

I apologize for this long discourse.  This occurred in 1999 I remember it like it was yesterday.  Of course, another point, maybe this will finally put an end to the constant bickering over who is and who is not a racist.

Why does anyone who disagrees with you have to be a Trump supporter? I disagree with virtually everything you say yet I will dance in the streets when I here that cunt Trump is dead.  I have no problem with successful people buying their own private Jet, superyacht or trophy bride a new set of cans for that matter. Why do you care what other people do with their own money? You seem to have a real problem with those that have created wealth. Just because you made fuck all during your life doesn't mean you have to hate on those that did. But hate appears to be the cornerstone of your existence. Tell me, are you the only non evil, middle aged white person on earth?

I think the concern here is that Al Sharpton is being used as a added noise factor. 

Is he a tax cheat, yes, but the meme and his being brought into this thread at all has nothing to do with that. If this was a thread about tax cheats there are plenty of those to refer to, many of them are not African American, many of them are not used in internet memes that reinforce negative stereotypes. If we are discussing tax cheats let's bring in a few more names and not just focus on one of them, and add some animus for all the others (including apparently many private equity firms, who despite whistleblower complaints are still seldom audited..) Let's spread the anger around a bit so it doesn't look like we only care when African Americans cheat on their taxes.

Al Sharpton's name got brought into this thread here:

Now there's the crux. You and "Professer Al", assert the intention of another person, use that subjective judgment to condemn them, and label with convenient loaded tags.

That Sharpton has made a nice living off exploiting and inflaming racial tensions is rather well documented.

Whether he has delivered value beyond his personal enrichment is debatable. The attention he brings may be positive, the destruction from his exhorting violence not so much. Giving him a pass because you presume his intentions to be "noble" is equally specious as assuming someone criticizing him is prima facia a racist.

It's nonsense such at this that are classic tactics to shut down useful discussion, most folks learned them in their early years, and most stopped using them after middle school.

LOL, nonsense.
For the record, I do not see all "progressives" as totalitarian commies.  I see three distinct groups that make up the left.
1. Well meaning individuals who think society should help the less fortunate. (I fall in this group but strongly disagree with how that help should be undertaken).
2. People who fancy themselves as well meaning but are shallow as pools of spit and insincere. Their liberalness more about assuaging their own guilt.
3. Power hungry redistributionists who trade taxpayer monies for votes and/or support of their special interest projects.
