Two men including one from Brampton have been charged after being allegedly busted taking a snooze in a stolen vehicle and crashing into an ambulance.
The incident happened around 11:40 a.m. in Orangeville when the OPP says officers from the Dufferin detachment responded to a call about a suspicious vehicle in a parking lot on Fourth Avenue.
Police say paramedics arrived on the scene and found two men sleeping in the parked vehicle. But when first responders tried to wake the men up the driver put the vehicle in reverse and crashed into an ambulance.
That’s when the two men exited the vehicle and took off on foot and police say a Good Samaritan who witnessed the crash ran after the suspects, helping officers arrest the suspects.
Police say the vehicle involved in the incident was stolen and two men, a 60-year-old and a 30-year-old, were arrested and charged with multiple offences including obstruct peace officer, dangerous operation and possession property obtained by crime over $5,000.
The OPP says Sukhdeep Singh, 30, of Brampton and Surjit Singh Sandhu, 60, of no fixed address have been charged. The accused were both transported to Dufferin OPP Detachment where they were held pending a bail hearing.
