Convoy of Saudi ambulances puzzles Fla. motorists

The Associated PressJuly 12, 2014 

— A convoy of Saudi Arabian ambulances may have left some Florida motorists scratching their heads.

Ten of the vehicles headed up Interstate 95 through Duval County on Friday, among 200 ambulances purchased by Saudi Red Crescent from Orlando-based Wheeled Coach Enterprises.

A sales manager for Wheeled Coach says the company has been delivering ambulances to the Saudis since April.

The Florida Times-Union reports (http://bit.ly/1mJjKE4 ) the vehicles were headed for the Port of Savannah before being loaded into containers and shipped east.
