CARRINGTON - A man led law enforcement on a chase Friday while driving a stolen ambulance on U.S. Highway 52 south of Carrington, according to the North Dakota Highway Patrol.
The vehicle was stolen earlier Friday from near the emergency room at Trinity Medical Center in Minot while a patient was being dropped off, the state patrol said in a statement.
Timothy Blowers was driving the stolen ambulance south and was driving into the northbound lane while evading officials. Another driver, Cole Zaderaka, was traveling north on Highway 52 and pulled his vehicle off onto the side of the road and into the east ditch to avoid the ambulance.
The ambulance drove into the ditch and hit Zaderaka’s vehicle on the driver side and the SUV rolled. After the ambulance vaulted, it came to a rest on its roof.
Zaderaka was taken to Trinity Medical Center for serious but non-life threatening injuries, and Blowers was taken to Jamestown Regional Medical Center and is in custody.
