A 30-year-old Chicago woman was charged for allegedly stealing a Chicago Fire Department ambulance late Sunday, according to police reports to NBC Chicago.

Cassie Weathersby is accused of taking the truck around 10:50 p.m. outside St. Bernard Hospital and was arrested after she crashed into another vehicle, police said.

Weathersby, who was uninjured, was charged with stealing a vehicle, driving on a suspended license and driving under the influence of alcohol. It’s unclear why she took the vehicle. She will appear in court for a bond hearing Monday.
