The Stockton Police Department reports 34-year-old Natasha Scott took a NORCAL ambulance from the hospital on North California Street.

Scott drove to the area of East Bianchi Road and Townehome Drive before she was spotted by officers, according to the Stockton Police Department.

Stockton police officers followed the suspect as she sped away from them at around 90 mph. The chase went on for 10 miles before CHP took over the pursuit.

Officers used spike strips to quickly stop Scott after she made a U-turn at the center median near Walnut Grove and drove onto southbound I-5.

A CHP officer arrested Scott on suspicion of stealing a vehicle and evading police, as well as other traffic violations.

No one was injured in the chase but the ambulance was badly damaged.
