Stolen Ambulance Driver Dies Crash

A man driving a private ambulance has died in a crash with a double decker bus and a car in North Yorkshire.

The driver stole the vehicle just 20 minutes prior to the crash with a double-decker bus. The driver was killed and six others injured following the accident on the A64 near York at 8.30pm Friday night. The bus driver was taken to hospital with serious leg injuries and 5 out of the 16 passengers were also taken to hospital with non life-threatening injuries. Another person, travelling in a Toyota Yaris with one other, was taken to hospital as a precaution.

North Yorkshire police said the ambulance was not being driven by a paramedic or member of ambulance staff when the collision occurred.
