QUINCY, Wash. - A man is in serious trouble with the law after police say he stole an ambulance and led police on a high speed chase Saturday, July 3rd.  Quincy Police responded to a report of an ambulance belonging to Quincy Valley Ambulance Service being stolen.  The ambulance was stolen while the crew was inside a residence assisting a patient.

A Grant County Sheriff's deputy saw the stolen ambulance headed southbound on Road P NW a short time later.  The deputy waited for back up unit to get into the area before trying to stop the stolen vehicle.  While waiting for help to arrive, the deputy followed the ambulance as it drove south on Road P NW and then headed west on I-90.

The deputy activated his emergency lights and the ambulance failed to pull over. The vehicle exited I-90 at Silica Rd where there was heavy traffic exiting the Gorge Amphitheater.  The ambulance was driving at speeds of between 40 and 60 miles per hour.

The driver of the ambulance never engaged the emergency lights or siren of the emergency vehicle and finally did pull over near Baseline Rd and Silica Rd.
