Two paramedics were sent to the hospital along with their patient after a motorist fleeing state troopers struck the back of their ambulance early Thursday.

Ohio State Patrol troopers were chasing an erratic driver, 27-year-old Daniel Jones, on Roosevelt Boulevard when the vehicle speeding 100 mph hit the rear of the ambulance at Brielle Boulevard just before 3 a.m., said Middletown Fire Chief Paul Lolli.

"Somehow the car tried to go around the medic and clipped the back of it," the chief said. "It's not every day you get hit at 100 mph in the back."

The paramedics suffered minor injuries and were taken to Atrium Medical Center, he said. They were treated and released. Their names were not given out.

The patient, who was en route to the hospital for another ailment, was not hurt in the crash, according to the chief.

The fleeing vehicle wrecked, but Jones was apprehended without incident after fleeing into a wooded area, Lolli said.

Jones was charged with fleeing and eluding, illegal possession of firearm, and OVI.  Officials said he had a felony warrant out of Montgomery County.
