Houston police have detained a man who allegedly stole an ambulance from outside a hospital emergency room and wrecked the emergency vehicle.

Police on Tuesday did not immediately release the suspect's name or possible charges.

Investigators are trying to determine whether the man was a patient seeking treatment when the ambulance was stolen Monday night from outside Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital.

Sgt. Walter Gaw says police received a call about an ambulance being driven in an unsafe manner. Investigators say the ambulance lights were flashing and sirens were blaring before the vehicle crashed into an overpass pillar. The suspect wasn't injured.
