Those guys have always  been good to me. Ambulances are costly and ambulance  companies don't  get as much as they deserve sometimes. There is a lot of that drug to keep drug addicts alive and I am not sure they get reimbursed  among other calls. Feel bad for the undeserved effect it will have on the company, even if there is insurance. Just for an idiot!!!

BREAKING

Clearfield man allegedly steals ambulance from DuBois hospital, leads police on chase

 
Police
 
 
 

DuBOIS — A 38-year-old Clearfield man has been placed in the Clearfield County Jail after he allegedly stole a DuSAN ambulance parked at Penn Highlands DuBois and led multiple police agencies on a chase throughout Sandy Township Sunday evening, according to a criminal complaint filed at the DuBois Magistrate office. 

On Monday, Sandy Township Police charged Matthew Wilsoncroft, Elm Street, with two felony counts of aggravated assault, a felony theft by unlawful taking, three misdemeanor counts of recklessly endangering another person, misdemeanor counts of DUI (controlled substance), fleeing or attempting to elude an officer, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, resisting arrest, public drunkenness, and summary counts of reckless driving, driving while operator's privileges are suspended or revoked and failure to keep right. Bail has been set at $100,000. 

According to an affidavit of probable cause, police were dispatched to meet with a man at 5:06 p.m. Sunday in the area of Doolittle's Station, located at 1290 Rich Highway. The caller told the 911 dispatcher that another man, later identified as Wilsoncroft, allegedly approached him and told him the Russians were trying to shoot him. Wilsoncroft was described to be wearing a gray T-shirt, in his 30s with short hair and was walking toward DuBois. 

While responding to Doolittle's Station, police saw a man matching the description provided by the caller walking on Liberty Boulevard. When a police officer approached Wilsoncroft, identifying himself as a police officer, Wilsoncroft reportedly took off running down the middle of the travel lanes on Liberty Boulevard. One of the officers eventually caught up with Wilsoncroft, who was allegedly sweating profusely and did not believe that he was a police officer. 

Police requested an EMS unit respond to examine Wilsoncroft, who was then transported to Penn Highlands DuBois Emergency Room by DuBois EMS for further evaluation, arriving at the hospital at 5:57 p.m. At 6:11 p.m., a staff member at PHH DuBois called 911 and reported that Wilsoncroft allegedly had stolen an ambulance owned by DuSAN EMS, the affidavit said.

At 6:16 p.m., a township police officer was flagged down by a DuBois EMS unit around Penn State DuBois campus. The crew told the officer that they saw the DuSAN ambulance traveling north on Route 255 toward McDonalds. The crew also noted that the ambulance almost struck their unit, the affidavit said.At 6:17 p.m., a police officer saw the DuSAN ambulance driving north on Route 255 and activated the siren and overhead lights in an attempt to stop the vehicle. Wilsoncroft reportedly failed to stop the ambulance and continued traveling north on Route 255. At 6:21 p.m., another police officer took position as the lead police car in the vehicle pursuit. While attempting to pass the ambulance in the left lane, Wilsoncroft allegedly attempted to push the police car off the road and then attempted to rear end the patrol vehicle after it gained position in front of him, the affidavit said. 

At 6:22 p.m., state police effectively deployed spike strips in the lane of the ambulance approximately 500 yards past the intersection of Sher De Lin Road in Sandy Township, causing the tires of the ambulance to deflate on the driver's side, the affidavit said. The ambulance slowed significantly but Wilsoncroft continued driving in the opposite lane of travel. Three vehicles, traveling south, had to brake and swerve onto the shoulder of the road to avoid being hit head-on by the ambulance, according to the affidavit.

At 6:25 p.m., a township police car was rear ended by the ambulance and it became disabled just past Mountain Run Road. The officer exited the patrol vehicle and attempted to arrest Wilsoncroft, who allegedly refused to listen to commands. The affidavit said Wilsoncroft, while in physical control of the ambulance, was reportedly under the influence of a drug or combination of drugs to a degree which impaired his ability to drive safely. His license was also reportedly suspended. 

In addition to state police, DuBois City police assisted in the incident, said township police Chief Kris Kruzelak. 

"All of the agencies involved did a phenomenal job keeping the public safe and getting the pursuit to an end without any further damage to property or any injury," said Kruzelak. "All of the officers did a really good job. The outcome was the best it could be."

Wonder if this thing is connected to a guy who was looking in people's windows yesterday on Airport Road on Rt. 830 outside Falls Creek.  A person reported a man with short curly graying hair peeping in their windows.  They ran out and looked all over but didn't find him.  Thought he must have continued down the road.  Didn't know if he got a ride or had a vehicle somewhere.  They looked in the woods and everywhere.  Makes sense that they guy could have continued into DuBois to Doctor Doolittles.  I have heard of various disoriented folks on drugs going around people's homes, trying to get in, etc.  This was day time, so you'd think the person may have been on something.

I would guess only because this never happened before.   

I don't think that while in use, any police cars or ambulances are locked.  Imagine trying to get back in and somehow the keys got lost.  

This is simply a case of a druggie gone awry.  Security doesn't stand guard, no matter who hires them, they patrol and are immediately available when needed.  Insurance will cover the losses.  Unfortunately the perpetrator who caused so much damage and stress for our police won't get his just desserts.

Stolen ambulance from Penn Highlands at Emergency. Where was the NEW security arranged by Penn Highlands and the City? Emergency would be the first place security should have been watching.

I doubt there is more than one officer at a time either patrolling or answering a call for help.  They're not going to be standing at the Ambulance entrance although the driver should have called for help.  Maybe he did, who knows?

Well someone better come up with a plan as there are more "druggies" than ever around here.

It wasn't all that long ago a woman lost her life on her own property near the hospital due to someone gone awry at the hospital.

Now they're building a new unit on the other side of town to house how many patients that my go awry?

As long as we treat drug addiction with drugs this will continue.

This isn't going to stop.  It's so deeply imbedded in our children to love pleasure above discipline, that who will ever be able to change it other than through a soul changing method?  Nope, that's not only not allowed, it's an embarrassing statement. 

You either raise your children in the proper way through your own self discipline, or just stop providing more children for the gristmill.

Well see after 18 it's that person's responsibility to act like a civil human. It's not the parents problem after 18. I know many of wonderful parents with poop ass kids. 9/10 times its the drugs that did it not the parents.

You're right about the 18 year old legal responsibility, but that child shouldn't be thrown away. Gently guiding them back if they stray into serious troubles is then our job again.

My children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren are all aware that I, and the generation ahead of them, will deal with them with no fear if they get out of line.  None of us are afraid to parent.  The only serious problem we've run into is the divorce issue which is sometimes necessary to prevent violence.  At that point, your hands are somewhat tied with the children of that couple, and it has shown itself, but we're always there for the children.

We do not abandon discipline of our family members at 18.  Doing wrong in their own lives is understandable, but continuing those actions will give them grief from all of us, despite their ages.  They will always be loved, but sometimes they need to feel the sting of our discipline also.  Bad actions happen, but if that family member continues, we will support correction of that behavior to the "enth" degree.  Does it take away from our own lives?  Yes and no.  When the child discontinues their behavior, then the entire family folds around them.  In the meantime, they run for cover, allow themselves to be hurt by their actions, and wish for better.  We're not suckers, and we can deal harshly, but the child always knows that when they learn to live peacefully and within the bonds of peace and civility, then we're here for them.  We have the lash and the love after.

The Biden administration is reportedly set to endorse legislation on Tuesday that aims to eliminate the sentencing disparity between crack and powder cocaine offenses.

Regina LaBelle, the acting director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, is reportedly planning to announce the administration’s support of a bill that would remove the sentencing imbalance during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday, according to The Washington Post, which obtained a copy of LaBelle’s prepared written testimony.

 

The bill, dubbed the “Eliminating a Quantifiable Unjust Application of the Law Act,” or the EQUAL Act, would put an end to the disparity in sentencing for crack and powder cocaine and allow individuals who were convicted or sentenced for a federal cocaine offense to be re-sentenced.

“The current disparity is not based on evidence yet has caused significant harm for decades, particularly to individuals, families, and communities of color,” LaBelle will reportedly say at the Senate hearing, according to the Post.

“The continuation of this sentencing disparity is a significant injustice in our legal system, and it is past time for it to end. Therefore, the administration urges the swift passage of the ‘Eliminating a Quantifiably Unjust Application of the Law Act,’ ” she will continue.

 

The administration’s backing of the EQUAL Act is especially significant for President Biden , who played a role in establishing the sentencing disparity. The then-senator in 1986 crafted a bill that ultimately helped lead to the imbalance in the sentencing of crack and powder cocaine offenses.

The legislation, which passed with bipartisan support and was signed into law by former President Reagan, included a provision that considered crack cocaine to be significantly worse than powder cocaine, which led to the disproportionate punishment of African Americans, according to the Post.

The law included a five-year minimum sentence for trafficking 500 grams of powder cocaine or five grams or crack, according to the Post. It came to be known as the “100-1 rule.”

Biden disavowed the bill 16 years later, according to the newspaper, saying “the road to hell is paved with good intentions.” He also distanced himself from the legislation on the campaign trail, calling it “a profound mistake” that he wanted to override.

 

The disparity decreased from 100-to-1 to 18-to-1 in 2010 through the Fair Sentencing Act.

The EQUAL Act is co-sponsored by Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) and Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.).
