A patient at St. Mary's Medical in Huntington was arrested after police said he stole an ambulance and then wrecked it.
Police said Raymond Spurlock, 40, who was dressed in only a hospital gown, stole the ambulance that was parked outside of the hospital.
Police said Spurlock drove the ambulance until he wrecked into three cars near the intersection of Eighth Avenue and 29th Street. He then took off running, but police said they were able to catch him. They said Spurlock took the gown off and was naked when they caught him. He also is accused of hitting a police officer during his arrest.
Three people from the other vehicles that Spurlock hit were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Spurlock is charged with felony grand larceny, leaving the scene of an accident and battery on a police officer.
