North Texas man gets 10 year sentence for stealing ambulance

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A Fort Worth man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for stealing an ambulance last year and later crashing it.
    
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports (http://bit.ly/2i4dS9I ) that 31-year-old Kenneth Golightly was convicted last week of aggravated robbery.
    
Authorities say Golightly took the ambulance at knifepoint in March 2015 from a crew that was finishing paperwork after completing a call at a hospital.
    
Golightly then drove off, reaching speeds of up to 70 mph through city streets before he crashed the ambulance through a fence about a mile from the hospital.
    
He fled on foot but was later arrested by police.
    
The ambulance, valued at $50,000, was totaled in the crash.
