Three Injured After Boy With Autism Steals Ambulance

Three people were injured after a teenage boy stole an ambulance from a Rhode Island fire station and crashed into a motorcyclist while dragging a firefighter trying to stop the vehicle on Thursday, police said.

The 13-year-old boy, who has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism, the motorcyclist and Coventry firefighter Scott Brown sustained minor injuries following the incident that was captured on video, the Boston Globe reported.

The boy was brought to the fire station Thursday night after officers met the teen and his mother at their car. Officers attempted to calm the “excited and unsettled” boy before bringing him to the fire station for evaluation.  Police said the boy will most likely not face any charges.
