Man Faces Multiple Charges After Hijacking Ambulance in Georgia Chase

A man is facing multiple charges after allegedly hijacking an ambulance with medics inside and leading authorities on a high-speed chase across multiple counties in Georgia.

Ladarius Williams reportedly stole the private ambulance from Piedmont Henry Hospital in Stockbridge, GA (Henry County) while medical personnel were preparing him for transport to another facility. During the incident, the medics managed to escape by leaping from the moving vehicle.

Georgia State Patrol troopers spotted the stolen ambulance near the Tara Boulevard and Interstate 75 intersection after receiving an alert about the situation around 1:00 PM. Despite attempts to stop the vehicle using PIT maneuvers and stop sticks, Williams continued to evade law enforcement, driving recklessly through residential neighborhoods and hitting patrol vehicles.

The chase came to an end when Williams lost control of the ambulance after another PIT maneuver, crashing into a pole near Dixon Road. He attempted to flee on foot but was apprehended with the use of a Taser.

The Clayton County Sheriff’s Office described the incident as reckless, stating that Williams showed no regard for human life or property during the pursuit.

The chase caused significant traffic disruptions and property damage. Williams is currently facing charges including felony fleeing, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, theft by taking, hit and run, and obstruction. The case is pending further investigation.
