Port Royal, SC- Last Friday, a small coastal town was terrorized by a nude man who commandeered a fire truck then struck and killed a pedestrian during a destructive joyride.
It seems that Kalvin Hunt, 26, decided to abandon his escort during a stroll outside of the Beaufort Naval Hospital, where he had been admitted for reasons unknown due to federal privacy laws.
Once he had absconded, Mr. Hunt happened upon an idling fire truck which was innocently participating in a medical call in a nearby apartment complex. Likely fulfilling a childhood dream that involved big trucks, lights and sirens, he hopped in, got naked and drove away in the $663,000 vehicle.
Sadly, his funny-crazy stunt took a sharp turn into psycho-crazy when he veered into oncoming traffic and hit six cars, then struck and killed a pedestrian, 28-year-old Justin Miller, before running into some trees and totaling the truck.
Despite being pinned inside the truck, Mr. Hunt was able to fight off two police officers and a paramedic. His memorable afternoon was brought to a standstill when a Taser was used on his naked ass. Hunt was shackled and then admitted to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston for treatment.
For his little escapade, Hunt was initially facing multiple charges — including theft of a fire truck and assault and battery — but on Tuesday he was officially charged with the murder of Miller.
“We charged him with murder because of what we found in the investigation as to how the pedestrian was struck by the fire truck. It was intentional, and that’s how we came up with the charge in conjunction with the solicitor’s office,” Cpl. Bob Beres with the SC Highway Patrol said.Tags: Crime, fire truck, Justin Miller, Kalvin Hunt, mental illness, Murder, soldier, South Carolina
