Drunk tries to steal ambulance

Police in the East Flemish town of Lokeren have confirmed the news that a drunken individual on Saturday attempted to abscond with an ambulance from a local hospital. The drunk managed to get the ambulance's motor running but failed to steer his way safely out of the hospital carpark.

It remains unclear how the drunken member of the general public succeeded in gaining access to the ambulance. The inebriated individual tried to leave the hospital carpark, but failed to see a bollard. He proceeded to crash the ambulance into this obstacle.

The driver was detained at the scene and had to sober up in a police cell. Lokeren police have drawn up a report. The drunk could now face theft charges. Fortunately nobody was injured in the incident.
