Police: naked man stole fire truck in US, then hit and killed pedestrian before his arrest
PORT ROYAL, South Carolina (AP) ' Authorities say a man who was naked stole a fire truck at an apartment complex in South Carolina and sped away, killing a pedestrian who was walking on a sidewalk.
Police say the driver was pulled from the fire truck after it crashed into trees and he began fighting with police and paramedics. A Beaufort police supervisor was not immediately available Saturday to confirm the driver's identity.
The man jumped behind the wheel of the fire truck after firefighters with the Beaufort-Port Royal Fire Department responded to an apartment complex.
The Beaufort County coroner's office says 28-year-old Justin Miller of Port Royal was killed by the careening fire truck. The fire truck also hit several cars.
