French road accident victims steal the ambulance
Two young Frenchmen rushed to a Belgian hospital after an accident on a freeway snatched the receptionist's hand-bag and then made off in an ambulance, judicial officials said Thursday.
Belgian prosecutors said the two men in their 30s were taken to a hospital in Saint-Nicolas, in the Antwerp region, after being slightly hurt in an accident on the Ghent to Antwerp motorway.
After stealing the bag "they climbed into an ambulance and fled", a spokesman for the prosecutor's office said.
They were detained not long later, he added.
