SC pedestrian dies after hit by stolen fire engine


PORT ROYAL, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina man is facing a list of



charges after



jumping naked into fire truck at an emergency scene,



then killing a pedestrian



and smashing into multiple vehicles as he



raced away.


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.


A Beaufort police supervisor was not immediately available



Saturday to



confirm the suspect's identity. The driver was pulled



from the fire



truck after it crashed into trees and immediately



began fighting with



police and paramedics.


Witnesses said the man was naked when he was pulled from the



fire



truck and when he jumped behind the wheel as Beaufort-Port



Royal



Fire Department firefighters responded to an apartment



complex.
