The El Paso Police Auto Theft Task Force was called out to investigate after police say Humber walked out of the hospital and took the ambulance, which was waiting in a bay.

Officers tried to stop Humber, but were unable to. She eventually crashed into a low rock wall and was taken into custody.

Update: EPFD officials say the department allows ambulances to be left unattended, provided that all doors and compartments are locked and the secure-idle system is engaged.

"The EPFD fleet is insured," a spokesperson said Tuesday afternoon. "The City may seek compensation, but that would come after the investigation is completed."

The department is still evaluating the damage to the ambulances.

Update: El Paso Fire officials say the ambulance was taken at 8:00 AM from the Del Sol ER. No one was injured and EPFD is currently assessing the damage to the ambulance.

The situation is still under investigation by law enforcement, EPFD officials say.
