    Police say a woman who missed the last bus for the night is accused of stealing an ambulance to get home from a hospital in Ohio.

    Court documents filed in Hamilton Municipal Court in Cincinnati say 43-year-old Lisa Carr is accused of getting into an ambulance that a driver had left running Thursday night and driving to her home in suburban Cincinnati.

    The driver apparently had left the ambulance to go inside the hospital with a patient.

    Police say the Springfield Township woman was arrested after a short pursuit. They say she told them she took the ambulance because she had missed her bus home.

    Carr is charged with theft, failure to comply with a police order and driving under suspension. Court records don't show an attorney for her.
