An ambulance patient jumped into oncoming traffic and then into the back of a pickup truck in a bizarre incident Friday morning on Highway 104 in Pictou County.
The man was being transported from Cape Breton to Halifax by Emergency Health Services when he became agitated and got out of the ambulance, which was parked on the side of the road in Mount Thom.
RCMP responded to multiple 911 calls about a distressed man on the highway at about 11:30 a.m., RCMP said in a news release Saturday.
Officers briefly shut the highway down and took the man into custody and then to hospital. Nobody was injured.
