A bizarre crash scene on Highway 11 near Bouctouche involving a car, an ambulance and an SUV has led to the arrest of a 30-year-old man.
Around 9:30 Tuesday night, Southeast RCMP say an SUV pulled over to help after a car struck an ambulance.
But when the SUV driver got out, the driver of the car jumped in and tried to flee with a passenger still inside.
The passenger was pushed out of the SUV during a struggle before it landed in a nearby ditch.
Police say the passenger was taken to hospital with serious injuries but no one else was hurt.
The suspect fled but officers brought in a police dog and a man was eventually apprehended.
Bradley Mitton of Moncton is facing charges including failing to remain at the scene, assault, theft of a vehicle and dangerous operation of a vehicle.
He will return to court on March 28 following a court-ordered evaluation.
