A pedestrian walking along Ribaut Road in Beaufort was killed Friday afternoon after being hit by a stolen fire truck driven by a naked man. Firefighters were dispathed to a medical call at Laurel hill Apartments around 4 pm and while tending to that emergency a nude man jumped into their fire engine and sped off down Ribaut Road. The fire truck struck 6 or 7 other vehicles at the intersection of Ribaut Road and Lady's Island Drive. The fire truck then hit a pedestrian near who was walking with another person near the Dollar General Store. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The driver of the fire truck then lost control and crashed into a wooded area between the store and a bowling alley. The driver was trapped inside and when crews tried to rescue him, he began fighting them. He was subdued, then arrested, and then taken to Beaufort Memorial Hospital to be treated for his injuries. Officers and paramedics were also taken to the hospital to be treated.
The police will charge the driver with two counts of assault and battery on a police officer and resisting arrest. He will also be charged with the theft of the fire truck, the numerous collisions, and the death of the pedestrian.
