Pedestrian fatally hit by fire truck stolen by naked man

BEAUFORT, SC (WTOC) -

Police in Beaufort say a naked Sumter man stole a fire truck and hit and killed a pedestrian.

Beaufort firefighters were at a medical call at the Laurel Hill apartments on Ribaut Road when the suspect, 22-year-old Kalvin Hunt of Sumter, stole the Port Royal fire truck.

Investigators say Hunt caused several wrecks, including one in Port Royal and another one near the base of the Lady's Island Bridge. Police say he then hit and killed a pedestrian along Ribaut Road.

The Beaufort County Coroner's Office said Saturday that 28-year-old Justin Miller of Port Royal was killed by the careening fire truck as he walked along a sidewalk.

When Hunt finally crashed the fire truck into a tree, he was pinned inside the fire truck. He then got free and started assaulting two Beaufort police officers. During the incident, three officers and one EMT were injured. Hunt was naked when he exited the vehicle. 

The three officers and one EMT were all treated and released from the hospital. Hunt is still in the hospital.
